An intelligent approach to digital infrastructure relies on a shared understanding of technologies and their possibilities. But it’s not just the tech that matters, it’s also the skills, literacies and confidence of people who use it.  

If we get infrastructure right, could we create the conditions for widespread reuse of our digital cultural content?

Questions to inspire your conversations:

  • What value do you think digital content adds to the offer of cultural organisations? What is the bigger win for audiences, society and the economy?
  • What digital infrastructures (platforms, standards and frameworks) are needed, between and across cultural organisations, to maximise the reach and impact of digital cultural content?
  • What could cultural organisations do to collect and preserve digital cultural assets, now and in the future? Which organisations already do this well?
  • What are the key considerations cultural organisations should take account of when digitising their collections and making them available to audiences?
