Quai des arts

Digital services programming for the media library of the Town of Cugnaux

2011 - 2013

Cugnaux is a community of 18,000 residents, located in the suburbs of Toulouse in the department of Haute-Garonne.

Inaugurated in 2016, the Quai des Arts is Cugnaux’s new cultural center, a space for living, for discovery and for sharing, open to all. It houses a library, a media library and exhibition area, and hosts artistic events that combine contemporary creations and free conferences. The building’s architecture and interior were entrusted to Munvez Morel Architectes.

The Town of Cugnaux asked Reciproque to expand the digital program for the cultural spaces with regard to user services. The mission consisted of identifying the challenges associated with new technologies in user practices: definition of the offering and its virtualization, survey and analysis of the content and heritage, digitalization aspects, and functional analysis of the cultural center’s web portal.

As part of its support function, Reciproque specified the organizational impact and the public services to be developed, drafted the technical specifications for the equipment, estimated a budgetary framework, set a schedule and a timeline, and identified the stakeholders able to carry out these services.
