Watch our video on Digital R&D pilot project ‘Happenstance’ to see how technologists can change how artists and arts organisations work

Interested in how a creative technology specialist can work with and enhance your arts project? Then watch our latest video on Digital R&D pilot project, ‘Happenstance’, which set up three technologist ‘residencies’ at venues Site Gallery, Lighthouse and Spike Island. The technologists worked closely with the venues, developing projects and solutions, and sharing skills.

Watch the video below to find out more:

Leila Johnston, a participating technologist, says of her experience: ‘…there are really productive ways for technologists and artists to work together and there are huge overlaps in the way that we work and the things we’re interested in.’

The £7 million Digital R&D Fund for the Arts is a partnership between Arts Council England, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Nesta. Find out how to apply: www.artsdigitalrnd.org.uk.

Watch our latest Digital R&D video on pilot project ‘Culture Cloud’ and audience-led exhibition curation

New Art Exchange and Artfinder, in collaboration with Birmingham University, were funded through our 2011 Digital R&D pilot programme to experiment with new business and exhibition models using digital tools.

They created ‘Culture Cloud’, an online hub which allowed artists to upload their artwork and share it with galleries and members of the public. The public were then allowed to vote for their favourite artworks to appear in a physical exhibition at New Art Exchange.

You can find out more about the project and its outcomes in the video below:

 

Skinder Hundal, Chief Executive, New Art Exchange, says of the resulting exhibition: ‘I’ve never seen the space the way it is, it’s a crazy mix of narratives, different perspectives, different cultures, different dimensions and mediums of art…’

Experiments in mobile ticketing

Are you thinking about trying out a mobile ticketing model for your venue? Watch our video update on the progress of ‘LSO Pulse’, London Symphony Orchestra’s pilot digital R&D project which is testing mobile marketing and ticketing, allowing students to purchase discounted concert tickets through mobile apps.

Nico Koepke, from KODIME, the tech company that developed the app says: 'Students and other young audiences can be very effectively reached and engaged on the mobile channel, and they appreciate the offer and reward with loyalty.' The apps will also use location data to show events nearby and allow students to share comments via social media.

The Digital R&D fund is open for application now, find out how to apply.
