Digital Culture: How arts and culture organisations in England use technology
Following a survey of Arts Council England’s regularly funded organisations in 2013, this report maps where England’s arts, culture and heritage organisations are at. This survey will repeated in the coming two years. This first year’s report paints a rich picture of how arts and cultural organisations in England are making use of digital technologies in pursuit of their core missions. It sheds much needed quantitative light on previously understood trends, such as the use of digital technologies for marketing purposes. It also measures the rate of adoption of different technologies by cultural institutions, and outlines what organisations can learn from the ‘cultural digirati’ – the 10% of organisations that are embracing technologies most widely and who, the survey suggests, are seeing significant paybacks.
