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.
Interested in how our work supports the cultural sector? Want to find out who we work with and what we believe in?
ACTION RESEARCH: Sign up open for Let’s Get Real Phase 4
For Phase 4 of Culture24’s dynamic collaborative action research project we will look at breaking down the boundaries in the way we work and the way we make things for our audiences.
We are looking for up to 30 cultural organisations to join us from end of April 2015 to November 2015. Find out all you need to know. You don’t need to have taken part in any of the previous projects to join Phase 4 and we actively welcome new organisations to the project. Join the likes of the V&A, RSC, Watershed, Chichester Festival Theatre and the Wellcome Collection who are some of the great organisations who have already signed up.
SIGN UP DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 16th APRIL 2015
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 as it has just been nominated for the Innovations Award at the 2015 Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence. 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.
