Special tickets for students/unwaged
Culture24 has created ten special priced tickets of £75 that are available to students or unwaged people who are working with or studying digital engagement, analytics or measurement in the cultural sector. If this is you, then please write to jane(at)culture24.org.uk by 5pm on Monday 9 September explaining your area of research and why this event would be valuable to you.
This is the second Culture24 Let’s Get Real conference and is the culmination of ten months of collaborative action research by a group of 24 cultural organisations in the UK (full list below). http://weareculture24.org.uk/projects/action-research/. The group is made up of national and regional museums, galleries, performing arts venues and arts agencies. Culture24 has led the research with international expertise from Seb Chan (Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian) and Rob Stein (Dallas Museum of Art).
The starting point for this work is the first ‘Let’s Get Real’ report that was published in September 2011. The frankness of this report and its open approach to speaking about the failure in the sector to really capture the attention of online audiences has been met with a very positive reaction and spiked the interest of the cultural sector in the UK and internationally.
When & Where
Culture24 is an independent charity which supports 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.
Culture24 provides platforms, networks and safe, collaborative spaces within which cultural organisations can work together to reach and engage audiences, benchmark, experiment and learn. We broker partnerships and strategic opportunities that it would be near impossible to access as individual organisations.
