Using technology to drive audience engagement, boosting the digital capability of cultural organisations and unleashing the creative potential of technology.

The #CultureisDigital project was informed by an online open conversation last year and was borne out of the Government’s Culture White Paper commitment to review the digitisation of our public collections and enhance the online cultural experience.

It also builds upon the Government’s UK Digital Strategy commitment to increase digital skills, digital participation and unlock the power of data.

In responding to these challenges, the report showcases innovative projects in the creative sector, highlighting the extraordinary collaborations between our world-leading cultural and digital pioneers and makes 12 policy commitments.

It sets out an ambitious framework for how culture and technology can work together to increase participation and boost the capability of cultural organisations and it is the first time that the Government has looked at how the two sectors can work together to unleash the creative potential of technology and help bring every cultural organisation – both big and small – into the digital age.
