What location types should we offer?

The vocabulary  "Location type" is empty. Which terms does the OpenCulturas team recommend to add?

Here are our suggestions for a typical OpenCulturas installation as a

general platform for arts + culture events

  • Theater
  • Museum
  • Concert hall
  • Open-air stage
  • Gastronomy
  • Club
  • Congress center
  • Public space
  • Fairground
  • Marketplace
  • Festival site
  • Monument
  • Tourist attraction
  • Multifunctional site
  • Educational institution
  • Hotel

Just as an inspiration. For your use case other terms might make more sense.


  • Do not add any "Other" type. Nobody is required to select a type, the field may be empty.
  • Avoid adding too many! When many types are only tagged by 1-3 entries the filter becomes a frustration raiser. And in case you use linked tags the landing page would look like an accident.

Other example: Festival site

You might use completely different terms depending on your use case. For example for an open-air festival:

  • Stage
  • Workshop
  • Catering
  • Stall
  • Sanitary facility
  • Camping

Obsolete question for initial installs in version 1.3.0+

Good to know: Updates will never affect your current taxonomy terms.

A fresh installation of OpenCulturas version 1.3.0 or higher already adds suggestions. You are free to rephrase, delete, or add terms.

For multilingual setups please remember to check/edit the translations as well.
