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.
A brand new, highly visual website and weekly email digest celebrating the objects, collections and stories to be found inside museums and galleries, www.MuseumCrush.com will replace www.culture24.org.uk soon.
We lead and coordinate the twice-yearly Museums at Night festival of late night openings and our BBC, 1914.org.uk and Visit London partnerships are key examples of how we aggregate and share cultural data with others.
Our ground breaking Let’s Get Real collaborative action research is now moving into its sixth phase and supports groups of cultural organisations to explore issues around digital impact and engagement.
We’re also leading a multi-partner initiative to promote and distribute digital cultural content to tourists as part of the Europeana Awareness and Europeana Creative projects (including VanGoYourself).
Our international work is through Culturemondo, an informal network of people who are developing, building and running online cultural services around the world.
Everything we learn from our projects lives in our Knowledge section.
