The company W-Point e.U. is the succssor of W-Point.G. & E. Wolf Perez OG. The portfolio of W-Point includes activities in the areas of informal and virtual training frameworks as well as project management, public relations, web development and graphic design. The company has a long history with cultural, educational and arts projects and an extensive experience of working in intercultural environments.
Over the last 12 years European projects in the Lifelong Learning Programme played a central role in the portfolio of W-Point opening new fields of work for the company. W-Point acted as project coordinator in the Leonardo da Vinci pilot project „The Performance Bridge“ (project promotor Spiral-e in Vienna, Austria) and the succeeding Transfer of Innovation project „Creative Futures“ (project promotor: Inchore College of Further Education, Dublin, Ireland). Both projects realised online training for performing artists including the 3d-game Second Life for the creation of a virtual stage with an interactive lighting and sound desk. W-Point developed also a module for e-tutors. From 2011 to 2014 W-Point organised the Grundtvig Workshops „Talking Foreign“, “Pimp My Europe” and “Literacy Games” which the Austrian National Agency rated as best practice examples. The experiences of these projects in the area of game based learning in adult education are the basis for the Strategic Partnership project [L]earningGames.
The manager of the company, Gerardo Wolf Perez, graduated from Goldsmiths’ College in London in Visual Design and undertook a non-formal training to become Biodanza facilitator. He has led and organised workshops and seminars in adult personality training in the UK, Chile, Brazil, Spain and Austria. He has expertise and a long experience with ITC applications especially in CMS and graphics.
Until 2014 Edith Wolf Perez was a managing partner of W-Point OG and has been responsible for the artistic direction of the international summer school at the Festival Bolzano Danza and as a project coordinator of European projects. She is still acting as a counsellor in the company W-Point though her current focus is on her research about dance, participation and cognition.
