Hello Culture 2014 - The New Cultural Data Revolution: Open Data Award
Digital culture is something that surrounds us, informs us, challenges our understanding and impacts on the way we view and approach things.
Hello Culture is an ongoing series of events that explores how digital technologies and media are disrupting the way cultural and heritage organisations can produce, interact, create, curate content, transforming how audiences can connect and engage with cultural experiences.
Challenges and Opportunities
Hello Culture 2014 launches The New Cultural Data Revolution: with data and digital
technologies transforming how audiences participate in culture, how do cultural and heritage organisations become digitally resilient and agile, in order to meet the demands of future audiences?
The New Cultural Data Revolution will challenge, inspire and develop digital knowledge. Working with partners, both national and international, it will bring the best and latest thinking in developing new income streams, business models, collaborations and cross sector partnerships.
The Call Out
Hello Culture are very excited to be able to address some of the above challenges in digital culture, through this exciting Call Out Award opportunity inviting artists, collectives, cultural organisations, collaborations, 2 and 3d designers, graphics and lighting designers, inventors, architects, film-makers, scientists, engineers and performers to explore a digital award using Open Data.
The data used can be static or real-time, it might be personal or from public sector open datasets or it might explore various other collected data. Our only criterion is that any data used meets the description of open data in the Open Definition3. The work can be the extension of an existing work, a work in progress, a concept outline or wireframe or a complete project.
The winning proposal will be announced at the Hello Culture symposium on 10th July and also displayed on the Hello Culture website. There may be the opportunity to display the winning commission at the symposium, but this is not a pre-requisite and will only be if appropriate.
Hello Culture is primarily looking for individual(s) who can present their existing , new work or concepts in an imaginative and playful way to support and encourage digital interaction, by helping people to engage with open data more easily.
There will be five judges on the panel:
Julie Freeman, Art Associate, Open Data Institute
