The 8 English NESTA/Arts Council England Digital R&D Fund projects have begun blogging their progress- by video! Watch here to get insight into the mobile games, mobile ticketing, audience curation, distribution, social media. The grants encourage cultural organisations to use digital technologies to engage audiences in new ways and to create opportunities for new business models whilst matching them with academic researchers to ensure the learnings are shared widely, and the evaluation is robust!
(Scottish organisations working with NESTA’s Scottish Digital Research & Development Fund have just started a similar journey – see our previous blog, and if you’re thinking about applying to NESTA’s second September 2012 deadline for the Scottish Digital R&D Fund, then these project videos and the details of the first round of Scottish projects should give you ideas about the types of research and development NESTA are looking for).
