Over ten months in 2014, a diverse range of 29 cultural organisations (from the V&A to the Tricyle theatre, from Watershed to The RSC) considered the question ‘is our content fit for purpose?’. The project was the third phase of Let’s Get Real, the dynamic collaborative action research programme, that is helping cultural organisations build their own capacity with digital, bit by bit, from the inside.
Join Culture24, project partners and others to hear the strategic and practical recommendations from this unique ongoing programme of work. Copies of the report will be available at the event and online afterwards. Arrive from 4pm for a 4.30pm start. There will be a short presentation of the report, followed by a discussion chaired by John Newbigin involving project partners and members of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts. This will be followed by drinks at 5.30 and an opportunity to network.
The event is held in collaboration with the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.

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.
