Media lab in Nantes.

As an association providing resources and as a hotbed of innovative projects, PiNG advises, accompanies and supports initiatives that enable people to identify, experiment and evaluate the social and cultural practices of multimedia. The associative project comes in four types of skills – Support, Training, Creation, Territories and Networks. Through its activities, PiNG enhances the cultural dimension of digital practices, seeing them as tools to access culture and knowledge, tools to express oneself and create, tools of mutualisation and cooperation. - PiNG supports the cultural, sociocultural, artistic, educational structures and the public bodies that wish to set up a multimedia project and/or integrate digital tools to their activity.

- PiNG develops a professional training program directed to any person wishing to gain or to broaden their skills on multimedia tools.Within these trainings, PiNG claims that the use of free software is imperative for the democratization of digital practices and for the durability of actions.

- PiNG develops spaces of experimentation, pedagogy and mediation using the digital creation.

- From a local scale to a European one, PiNG livens up the territories using digital technologies and networks, in order to simplify the projects, implement efficient practices of mutualisation and solidarity and to favor the crossings actors/places/public and create open partnerships.

And in a transverse way, PiNG develops resources online but also physical ones directed towards bearers of multimedia projects.
