MEET is the Italian organization that supports digital culture and creative technology.
MEET was born out of Meet the Media Guru with the fundamental support of Fondazione Cariplo. The first partner is the platform of thoughts, ideas and events focused on innovation and digital technology the art critic and digital culture expert Maria Grazia Mattei founded in 2005; the second partner is one of the world’s main philanthropic organizations which aim is to help organizations to better serve their community and give ideas a future.
MEET delivers a massive plan of on life – on line and on site – activities that bring people to experience and embrace digital technology as a part of their daily life and a resource for their creativity.
MEET aims to reduce Italian digital cultural divide. Other key factors are exchange, discussion and building of new projects together with several international partners, first of all the Toronto George Brown College, namely the Institute Without Boundaries specialised in multi-disciplinary and shared planning.
Designed as a social-oriented institution, MEET collects, promotes and shares creative ideas and innovative projects to reduce the digital cultural divide and guarantee an increasingly more active participation with an approach centred on meeting and inclusion.
MEET’s main partner is Intesa Sanpaolo; the digital culture center is powered by Artemide, Fondazione Fiera Milano, Repower and Sigest.
