Culture24 exists to support the cultural sector to reach audiences across digital platforms. We collect, curate and distribute content from and about museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. In so doing we provide a digital platform for cultural organisations of all sizes, promoting their activities and content to a wider audience via both their own channels and third party services.
We are a registered charity and an independent limited company based in the heart of Brighton’s North Laines. We share a lovely building with other creative arts and media companies including Lighthouse, ClearLeft and Mind Orchard.
Ten years worth of public investment in Culture24 has funded the creation of a flexible, intelligent and sophisticated technical digital infrastructure for the creation and distribution of cultural data. At the same time, digital platforms have evolved as one of the most effective channels for the sector to communicate, connect and engage with its key audiences.
Culture24 works effectively to bridge the gaps between the separate government policies for arts, heritage, education and tourism. At the same time we embrace and understand the many different types of cultural venues working in these areas – museums, galleries, libraries, artist studios and collectives, heritage sites, archives and others. We take a unified approach to these issues and these sectors, believing that audiences are not concerned with the artificial divisions that exist in policy terms.
We exist to:
* Support the cultural sector to reach audiences on digital platforms
* Inspire and inform existing culture lovers providing them with access to up-to-date information
* Bring in a new generation of culture lovers through campaigns and targeted editorial
* Nurture tourism, learning and play by providing a centralised technical infrastructure for digital content creation, collection and distribution.
