Mapa das Ideias is a Portuguese private-owned company dedicated to the relationship between museums, audiences and communities, since 1999. Our expertise in museum and cultural communication has led to the creation and development of mediation tools and projects, working in different cultural and artistic settings.
Initially focused on museum communication, Mapa das Ideias has broadened its services to other niches in the cultural and creative economy, providing consulting services (from audience development to communication planning) as well as a variety of solutions from learning kits to exhibition design for a number of different clients.
We have a lightweight structure, simultaneously multidisciplinary and specialized, focused on research, content and creativity. Constant research and networking projects invites synergies or innovative products and processes.
Our work principles put people and ideas ahead of technology, which is seen as a tool rather than a purpose in itself. Creativity, training and research are promoted by us, to our staff and partners, as well as to our clients, as decisive factors regarding competitiveness
Mapa das Ideias has been involved in international cooperation projects, having led the Museum Mediators Project financed through the Leonardo da Vinci programme, and being a partner in the eCult Skills project led by the Hellenic Open University.
