We had the good fortune of connecting with Vicky Agulla and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vicky, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Since I was at school I knew I was going to study Journalism. As soon as I started studying Social Communication, I got in the media and my life changed. But my consummation in terms of academics was having won the scholarship to do a master’s degree in Cultural Management. The process behind my business has been going on for 7 years. I have extensive professional knowledge in communication and a significant experience in public and private sectors with multicultural projects which have given me a wide understanding and varied expertise to work in many different kinds of situations, media, sectors, audiences, cultures and areas. My practice as a freelance journalist since 2016 provided me with strong skills to cover prestigious events – by Vitus- including Festival de Cannes, Biennale or Berlinale where I work as a correspondent under the pressure of deadlines but always maintaining the necessary professional independence with an open mind predisposed to learn. By Vitus is like the signature of all my projects. The brand By Vitus is like a resume of the different festivals I covered in that year but now, it involves every plan signed by Vitus. My mission is to generate content around art to share the desire to be part of the culture of each place; and my vision: To become a benchmark in the cultural field from different areas: production, communication and management. I enjoy working in a team enriching my knowledge with professionals from other disciplines who teach me how to build up Social Media, Branding & Marketing plans for different companies. All my work signed by Vitus is summarised in: www.byvitus.com.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
During my university career, I achieved every goal that I set, such as graduating with a Thesis in Institutional Communication in Fine Arts Museums with the grade of 8/10. I am used to working in direct collaboration with colleagues through advice and consulting on issues of social communication and independent journalism. In addition, I have a great capability in advising in a pragmatic way about press and diffusion in the areas of culture, politics and society. I have learned a lot from psychology and sociology working in different NGOs in Latin America through cultural actions that had children as main protagonists. I have been awarded a scholarship for a Master in Cultural Management in Barcelona. Now Im in Miami, working remotely and closely on cultural projects, collaborating in a Tourist Tours agency for Wynwood (@wynwoodbuggies), virtually joining an art exhibition for Greece and collectively supporting an Ibero-American platform Migrarte. Nothing is more rewarding than living what I am passionate about, such as communicating ART. If I had to define myself in a sentence, it would be: Culture in constant movement.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The main credit goes to my family, for having supported me in absolutely all my projects. My mother with her emotional protection at any time and my dad was a great editor in every project. My love that motivates me to continue betting on the cultural industry. My godmother who accentuated my desire to study journalism. In this area I cannot fail to mention Maximo Tell, current Content and Programming Manager of Cadena 3 Argentina who taught me about Argentine journalism and CJ Carballo, Presenter of Cualquiera Radio who introduced me to the world of local culture. As for books, one that captivated me a lot was Geography of Time, a work that showed me the different meanings of time according to culture and its powerful value when creating.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
