Culture24′s project work supports the cultural sector and seeks new ways of making the best use of resources already available in a cost effective way.
Culture24 started out in 2001 with one website about museums and galleries. Over the years our team, publishing infrastructure, expertise, database, networks and remit have grown and developed. We now support a wide range of partner projects across the arts and heritage sectors, offering digital and publishing expertise to a range of cultural venues and professionals.
We publish two flagship websites Culture24.org.uk (guide to arts and heritage) and Show.me.uk (children’s site).
We’re also leading a multi-partner initiative to promote and distribute digital cultural content to tourists as part of the Europeana Awareness project.
Our Action Research project worked collaboratively with a range of 24 UK institutions to explore ‘How to Evaluate Success Online?’.
Everything we learn from our projects lives in our Knowledge section.
Find out about our series of five ‘Make It Count’ workshops taking place across the UK in partnership with Google between December 2011 and June 2012. You can also download the presentations and listen to audio from our Let’s Get Real conference which took place in September 2011 at Watershed, Bristol.
We also work internationally through Culturemondo, an informal network of people who are developing, building and running online cultural services around the world.
