We Are Culture24
Culture24 is an independent charity which supports the cultural sector to reach and connect with audiences. We are a small and dynamic team of writers, thinkers, producers and publishers who love arts and culture, understand digital and believe that cultural organisations have a vital place in a better world.
We are best known for publishing great websites about culture; producing the successful Museums at Night festival of after-hours openings, and leading Let’s Get Real, the collaborative action research project involving cultural organisations across the UK and Europe. We also aggregate and share data about thousands of cultural events exhibitions and venues with a range of partners including the BBC.
