Proasur is a design and development company of cultural productions with an extensive trajectory. Our firm is behind several state projects, but also under other international ones.
Proasur, an example of cultural internationalisation
Internationalisation allows a company to develop all or part of its activities in countries other than its own, while respecting the differences inherent to each culture and country.
This process takes time and requires prior planning that is capable of both adapting to the possible changes and needs that arise in the project and adapting to the contextual circumstances.
At Proasur we have had the pleasure of exploring markets in South America, Europe (in countries such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany and Portugal), as well as different Spanish cities. We have also collaborated in projects in Algeria, Miami, Japan and Kuwait, where we participated in the museographic project of the city’s Cultural Centre.
How the coronavirus affected international projects
With regard to the circumstances that can affect the development of an international project, it is worth mentioning the pandemic context caused by the appearance of the SARS-Cov-2 virus, which brought with it a series of restrictions that made it difficult to manage such projects.
The first of these was home confinement, under which it was not possible to carry out activities beyond the essential ones: purchasing basic items, going to the workplace as long as it was not possible to do so telematically, etc.
Once the confinement was lifted, another series of measures were established, including the impossibility of travelling abroad due to the closure of borders, allowing only the shipment of materials and a subsequent delay. This made it difficult for Proasur to carry out the projects agreed with other countries as normal. An adversity that we at Proasur tried to resolve effectively.
Once the situation seemed to improve, we were able to resume our activity, but not without some difficulties, but our persistence and commitment to our clients and our work made us rethink the situation.
We carried out our work always respecting the strict security measures established in the country of destination and also in the country of origin, guaranteeing the health of all those involved and the smooth running of the project. For this purpose, the relevant temperature measurements, use of masks and hydroalcoholic gels, quarantines, antigen tests, etc. were carried out.
In addition, we drew up guidelines and response plans for this virus to protect our workers and prevent its spread in the event of an outbreak.
Our commitment to our clients and our projects pushes us to find ways to ensure that the difficult and complicated working conditions have an impact on the final result.
Oman and art
Oman has a curious way of offering the Arab world without the stridency of neighbouring countries. They have a strong sense of national identity, taking care to nurture their rich heritage, being proud of their past as traders and optimistic about the future.
Outside the capital, villages and rural areas retain the charm of history, extolling Bedouin values as a hallmark of identity. The natural beauty, mountains and endless dune deserts add to this charm.
In terms of architecture, Oman is a reflection of its rich past and promising future with ancient forts, mosques and architectural marvels. In addition, it has a rich museum heritage that has yet to see the work of star architects.
The Great Mosque of Sultan Qaboos
The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is one of the country’s most impressive monuments with a capacity of 20,000 worshippers. It is considered one of the architectural jewels of the city thanks to its combination of Western, Eastern and Central Asian styles.
It is built of marble, a material that beautifully reflects the colours of the city when the sun shines on it.
Royal Opera House Muscat
The Royal Opera House in Muscat is a theatre that has hosted a number of renowned opera singers, including Plácido Domingo, and has staged operas, ballets, jazz concerts and Arabic folklore.
The building was inaugurated in 2011 and is a fine example of contemporary Omani architecture. It is a bridge between different cultures and gives young people the opportunity to learn about their past without renouncing their future.
National Museum of Oman
The National Museum of Oman is located in the capital, Muscat. Its 4,000 square metres of construction make it one of the most representative art galleries in the country and the largest in the Gulf.
It is made up of 15 or so galleries through which the country’s maritime tradition is presented in the form of life-size replicas of historic Omani ships and numerous urban models complemented by audiovisual and interactive components.
Its 250 showcases display 7,000 historical pieces that seek to preserve Omani artistic and cultural heritage.
Get to know Oman
The Sultanate of Oman is located in western Asia on the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It has an area of 309,501 km², of which approximately 80% is desert. Its economy is based on oil and natural gas.
Its capital, Muscat, is a modern and dynamic city characterised by the absence of skyscrapers, as by order of the sultan no building must exceed 100 metres in height.
Proasur’s work in Oman
In its commitment to culture, Muscat offers an important network of museums. Proasur is involved in two projects in the Sultanate of Oman, which are protected by confidentiality agreements until the date of their inauguration.
At Proasur we carry out international projects anywhere in the world.
