We Are Culture24
Culture24 is an independent charity that brings arts and heritage organisations together to do amazing things they couldn’t do on their own. 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.
If you’d like to keep in touch with all of the amazing things we do, sign up below to receive our regular newsletter.

Let’s Get Real – Young Audiences
In November 2015 we kicked off a brand new collaborative action research project to explore how arts and heritage organisations can get better at reaching and engaging young audiences with their digital content.
We are working with 19 arts and heritage organisations over 7 months from November 2015, to help them better reach and engage children and young people through developing effective digital content publishing strategies based on fit for purpose tactics and skills.
