  • Such Tweet Sorrowin which six actors ‘played out’ Romeo and Juliet over six weeks through 140 character tweets (Mudlark and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2010 collaboration)NT Live: high profile and exciting initiative to broadcast live National Theatre performances of plays onto cinema screens worldwide – MetOpera have done the same thing.Hide and Seek: who have adapted a methodology from computer gaming and combined it with more traditional arts. Their projects include Tate Trumps – which is an app for smartphones. The language indicates how Tate sees this as an opportunity to make its collection more accessible and approachable to a younger audienceGo Genie: an NESTA sponsored initiative led by a company called Pesky People - growing database that tells you what accessibility facilities any place has.
  • Tools …… dataMy Cake’s Culture Benchmark: by entering their financial data (information they will need to pull together anyway), arts and culture organisations can compare themselves to others (by sector, size, region, etc) and see how their income and costs compare. It's a case of everyone contributing a small amount to a much larger, very useful whole.Culture Hack Day: shows what can be created by talented developers - Culture Hack enables technology, creative and cultural sectors to try new things out in the short space of time, creating experimental products and ideas away from day-to-day business pressures and agendas.Angel Shares: a crowdfunding site specially for arts and cultural organisations. Ex. The John Peel Centre for the Creative Arts using loveangelsharesto raise £25,000 before Christmas. Huge campaign online and on the ground – ex. Stephen Fry lent his support too – power of twitter …. connecting audiences with artistic production, to this add sites such as www.thebiggive.org, www.sponsume.com or www.wedidthis.org.uk
  • Bristol…. Could have picked Manchester, Birmingham etc, etc… but this is not about big city …D-Shed: Watershed, through D-Shed - a digital platform on which the rich mix of creatives from across Bristol and the region can showcase their talents. This gives them a far higher profile than a user-generated Myspace or YouTube upload, it promotes Bristol as a distinctly creative place to the rest of the world, Watershed: flow of creative talent while improving the credentials of the organisation as open, generous and a real place for creativity and innovation.M-Shed – history of the city – story telling – digital and physical convergence ………. …. arts audiences seek trusted brands online for content as much as they do in the high street or any other walk of life. …
  • Closer to home (Lincolnshire)i) Life on the Verge: Life on the Verge (Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust) - This on-line activity is the largest wildflower survey of Britain’s roadside verges - aims to identify the most important roadside verges for limestone grassland in South-West Lincolnshire, North-East Rutland and East Leicestershire; to recruit as many volunteers as possible to look for important wild flowers, and teach potential survey volunteers field botany skills to enable them to conduct roadside surveys. Some more examples … ????
