The Culture24 network of museums, galleries, libraries, archives, arts organisations and heritage sites is the most comprehensive database of its kind in the UK. To find out how and why to get involved, read on…
What is the network?
Our network consists of the 5,000-plus museums, galleries, archives, libraries and heritage sites that contribute their information to our Direct Data Entry (DDE) database – the backbone of everything we do.
What is the network for? To promote the work of museums, galleries, archives and heritage sites in the UK, digitally, to the widest possible audience.
How do we do this? We put your information on our award winning websites and we give it to other people (like the BBC and www.1914.org.uk ) to publish on their websites, apps and other services too. We build it into campaigns like Museums at Night and we advocate for you on the basis of the brilliant things you do.
What can you do? Keep your DDE entry up to date with all the latest information on your venue, events, exhibitions, collections and resources. Also, send us your press releases and news so we can write about you on our Culture24 website.
What does it cost? We offer our listings aggregation service to publically funded and non-profit cultural venues at no charge.
What are the terms and conditions? We trust our network and our publishing partners to respect this valuable information source so keep rules and restrictions to a minimum. You can read our (short!) DDE providers Ts&Cs here and Ts&Cs for Data sharing (consumers) here.
If you are a commercial gallery or other for-profit cultural organisation, we will shortly launch a service especially tailored for you. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be informed when this launches.
