Mediamatic Travel is a DIY- travel agency for cultural professionals, or non-professionals with an above average interest in arts & culture, from all over the world.
Our mission is to stimulate international collaboration amongst cultural professionals and enhance the visibility of underground culture in cities online and offline. Mediamatic Travel provides an open platform where people can exchange information about the unseen or underground culture in their city. Things you normally won't find in your average travel agency.
Our Guides are the core of our network.
Every guide has their own guide page in which they can share their favorite cultural happenings in their cities. Guides take travelers on an online journey through the highlights of their city.
At the moment about 90 guides are listed all over the world. To expand our network, we are looking for new guides who are enthusiastic to guide visitors around in their city, share art & cultural highlights online and keep online city information up-to-date.
Wherever you are located in the world, from Vladivostok to Santiago de Chile, everyone is welcome to join as a guide.
However, we are looking to replace guides who are no longer active in the following cities; Erbil, Kabul, Bogota and Taipei. Also we are particularly looking for guides in other cities like; Moscow, Vienna, Belfast, Manchester, London, Porto, Madrid, Minsk, Helsinki, Stockholm and Paris. That's only in Europe, but worldwide we'd love to expand out network in; Cape Town, Jo'burg, Dar-Es-Salam, Accra, Manila, Bangkok, Hanoi, Chennai, Delhi, Hong Kong, Mexico-city, Vancouver, Seattle, Miami... and many, many more cities.
These cities are all guide-less on our network and we believe they all have a thriving cultural underground. So if you live in one of these cities check out Mediamatic Travel and sign up! Your entries to your city page are obviously indispensable for both us and the future travelers to your city!
Now why should you become a guide?
Needless to say you'd like to inform people about what's really going on in your city. Or maybe you'd like to enrich your cultural network, gain more visibility of your city online. It's also a nice way to meet other cultural professionals across the world: all visitors are interested in your city for a reason. Maybe they are looking for artistic collaboration, a story to write or an eye-opening experience.
If you get contacted by a visitor and the two of you meet for consultation: you can receive € 45 for the first hour of consultation. Further arrangements are to be discussed by the two of you. You can also choose to give the consultation for free, it is up to you.
