For this session we are looking at the implications of an open digital culture for cultural organisations: how it affects organisational structure itself; relationships with audience and online community; and how an open culture treats its content. These are broad, interwoven themes, and this session will be as much about trying to define the questions as finding answers.

What does ‘open’ mean? Open source, open data and the open idea of internet communities are not the same thing – but they do share the same ethos – the idea of a collaborative space, where knowledge is available and innovation is for the benefit of the group.

So at a time of increasingly limited financial resources, but great technical innovation, can adopting open behaviour provide solutions for cultural organisations ? Or will the changes that it will inevitably demand undermine those very organisations’ structures, identity and place in the cultural landscape?

We hope you will join us on 27 March to hear our speakers and discuss these issues.
