Arts Digital R&D Podcast 4: data and archives is now live on the Arts Council’s iTunes and SoundCloud channels. And this month they’re looking at how arts organisations can open up their archives, collections and data using digital technologies. Plus and it's a big plus they have Bill Thompsn and Drew Hemment. 

What’s in it
Joining John Wilson in the studio are Bill Thompson, Head of Partnership Development, BBC Archives; Drew Hemment, Founder and CEO of annual ideas festival, Future Everything; and Dr Paul Gerhardt, Director of Archives for Creativity. They discuss what arts organisations need to consider when digitising their archives as we hear from bespoke archive Siobhan Davis Replay alongside commercial giants Google, who have partnered with arts organisations in the Google Art Project.The V&A and Public Catalogue Foundation also tell us how involving the public in tagging your digital archive can create new ways of experiencing a collection; our guests discuss how organisations can use their data innovatively and creatively, opening it up to the public and even developers; and we get technical as we hear from the British Museum who are working alongside other cultural institutions to revolutionise the way we search collections data through the web.

    The Reader Organisation are looking for web workers to get involved in a project coming up at the end of January to help them promote reading to the people of Liveprool as part of an event called Impact48.

    The Reader has high hopes for the weekend and is looking for volunteers who can build apps, develop a website for the Liverpool – City of Readers’ project and create a marketing campaign that uses social media to promote the project. One app which the Readers think would be great would be a reading tour of Liverpool linking stories, authors and events to a mobile app – but a key aspect of the weekend is to find new exciting ways to get the city reading using technology.

    These R&D projects are testing the use of digital technologies to widen audience access and engagement in the arts, with the purpose of developing useful products, services and knowledge for the wider the arts and cultural sector so surely we could be applying for some of this money here.
