Navigating through the map.
I think that one way to make more pleasant and easy navigating through the map (performances, workshops, lectures) is giving more control of the globe on the home page. The globe spins automatically showing today's events. The pause mode could give the users the hability to rotate the globe according to their will, selecting the events and places that catch their attention.
It can be seen just as an aesthetic ajustment, but i believe this can provide more autonomy and independency to new users.
PS: I also want to share that on the pause mode is impossible too see other events. Maybe it can be changed too.
