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?

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 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. The deadline for signing up is March 31 2015

VanGoYourself.com

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.
