Types of Qultura project

Just as people are designed to be interactive, so too are Qultura projects. Qultura projects are designed to be highly variable in terms of size, the length and duration of a project, the type of project, and also the level of project. This is because one Qultura project can yield or create other Qultura projects, two Qultura projects can also merge into one project, and this is what can lead to an infinite number of different variations and opportunities for change.

Projects can exist on different levels

Qultura projects can exist on different levels, so that one project may involve different, smaller projects. We generally call a larger project which involves or incldues smaller projects a container project. For example a local community project is a container project which serves a local community and contains other projects such as Qultura Fringe which is a stable project or a local community garden project.

Appeals and community support projects

If a project needs material or financial resources then it is deemed an appeal or community support project. Unlike other projects appeals and community support projects are developed and maintained by reverse participants, but administered by volunteers.

Partnership projects

Partnership projects are projects which are developed in collaboration or cooperation with another organization, or are developed by Qultura within another organization. For example Project Zero was originally a partnership project developed by Qultura for People Plus as a creativity project within their Work Programme for ESA benefit claimants but Qultura pulled out and the project was shelved. Today Project Zero is a shadow project for the DWP and Job Centres but is not a partnership project as there is no official agreement between the DWP and Qultura. Project Zero, while officially registered on the Universal Credit system, is a standalone stable project.

What cannot be a Qultura project?

Qultura projects should fit within our mission and objectives of promoting social and cultural change through the development and use of empathy and need to be strictly non profit and freely accessible to the wider community. Qultura projects cannot:

  • be commercial or profit-seeking or be of benefit to a business or commercial enterprise
  • promote any kind of specific ideology or belief system
  • be used as a form of protest or disruption
  • be used for a mission or objectives which is counter to or unconnected to our global mission and objectives
  • be used as a means of oppression, control or domination over any individual human
  • be used to secure data or information from any person for a third party or government department without someone's agreement, knowledge and informed consent.
  • be promoted as a form of therapy, healing, professional guidance or alternative to a clinical, medical or professional assistance or solution.
