Culture24's 2015 Let’s Get Real conference will take place at Brighton’s Dome Theatre Studio on 23rd September
‘The word digital means everything and nothing, focusing on it is the biggest distraction of a generation.’ Tom Goodwin writing in the Guardian
It isn't only organisations struggling to adapt to digital change, it’s the people in them. At Culture24 we believe that real innovation lies in changing peoples’ work patterns, rhythms and the ways they communicate. This year’s Let’s Get Real conference asks ‘What’s the story?’ and brings together a range of experts, artists and thinkers to help us make more out of our digital cultural heritage. Content strategies, practically focussed solutions, innovation with what we already have, organisational shift – all this packaged in a mix of keynotes, conversations, critique and provocations. We will help you to understand how to use different narratives about your organisation and your content. Our ambition is to break down boundaries in the way we work and the way we make things for our audiences.
Seb Chan (our museum superstar) will be telling us how to create new narratives, Chris Wild (the man behind the massively successful Retronaut) will tell us how to make the past go viral, Alexa Clay (our expert on subculture) will be talking about her brilliant new book 'The Misfit Economy' and Owen Valentine Pringle (our digital strategist) will be looking inside the issues of digital transformation.
We have a panel discussion on fandoms, a deep dive into long form storytelling and (of course) our unique Crit Room where we take a look at what you've been up to and offer some professional advice live on stage.

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.
