Medialab Prado’s cultural mediators play a fundamental role in its operations. They are always present in the space where activities are carried out, to ensure that it is not merely a place where information is sent out, but one where it is also received, a place of encounter and connection between various players. Mediators are both investigators and socio-cultural agents who help scheduled activities to result in productive and meaningful experiences for all members of the public.

The team of cultural mediators, selected via public open call, is made up of people with very different backgrounds, each of whom develops their own research project in an open process involving users and the general public.
