The Walled Culture project looks into the evolution of access to knowledge and culture in an increasingly digitised world, as well as the new relationships being built between creators and their fans.
The project combines blog posts with a series of interviews in podcast and vlog format, to gather a maximum of practical information from people that face culture walls on a regular basis and, in some cases, have found ways to go around them.
