We Are Culture24
Culture24 is an independent non-profit company which exists to support 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.

CONFERENCE: Exploring digital cultural learning together
Culture24’s first Connecting Collections conference will bring together a diverse mix of speakers and delegates to explore how cultural organisations, teachers, children and young people can collaborate to create meaningful learning experiences. Save the date of 29th of June at the National Maritime Museum.
VanGoYourself.com is a fun project aimed at people who are tired of just looking at paintings and like the idea of getting inside them instead.
We are very excited to have not one, but TWO international awards at the Museums and the Web awards conference in Chicago – Best Digital Exhibition and the prestigious People Choice award. A huge thanks to everyone who voted for us. We are also nominated for the Innovations Award at the 2015 Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence which is announced on 29th April.
Even BBC Radio One’s Nick Grimshaw has been at it as part of their Get Creative campaign. See Grimmers showing us how he VanGo’d himself as The Lute Player in this funny short video.
