Case Studies Audience Development for the Arts

Digital Culture 2014 
Results from the 2014 survey of how arts and cultural organisations in England use technology

Now in the second year of a 3-year study,  NESTA's Digital R&D Fund for the Arts is tracking how arts and cultural organisations in England use technology. Almost 1,000 organisations participated this year, giving them the richest picture yet of digital activities, importance and impact in the arts and culture.

In the 2013 survey they found relatively fast rates of technology adoption, this year’s survey paints a picture of organisations consolidating their digital activities and enhancing their impact. 

One of the key trends emerging from the study is the growing importance of digital technology for arts and culture business models. Significantly higher numbers of organisations are using technology to generate new revenue streams, and the top 3 activities forecast to grow in 2015 all relate to raising funds.
