On July 5, the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport began a conversation about the ways technology and culture work together in today’s world.
The #CultureisDigital initiative began in April under MP John Glen’s predecessor, but today’s conversation is a new phase Glen launched this month. In this video, Glen uses the hashtag #CultureisDigital to invite tech companies and cultural organizations to join the British government’s vision for the cultural sector laid out in last year’s Culture White Paper.
#CultureisDigital is focused around four central questions facing the technology/culture intersection:
- What new kinds of audience access and participation are the result of technology?
- How can the UK build its cultural infrastructure?
- How can the UK become more innovative with regard to content and technology?
- How can the UK build the skills and business models to make digital culture thrive?
Use #CultureisDigital on social media to join the conversation, share your expertise, or learn about culture and technology in the UK.
