It’s great to see so much interest in Culture24’s conference Let’s Get Real: How to Evaluate Success Online? Tickets are selling well, lots of people are getting excited about it on Twitter, and Culture24 director Jane Finnis and I just made a reconnaissance trip to our conference venue, the wonderful Watershed in Bristol. It’s an inspiring place right on the waterfront, full of creative people – I think we’re in for a brilliant couple of days in September!
There was also a flurry of interest in our Action Research Project following the presentation Jane and Seb Chan gave at the Arts Marketing Association conference in Glasgow last week – you can watch their presentation, and hear their song, here:
The conference will see the launch of our final report on the Action Research Project, and many of the speakers and workshops will be focusing on drilling in to the results and looking at what they may mean for cultural and heritage organisations’ online offers.
Several Museum Studies students have got in touch asking about discounted tickets to the conference. 5 tickets will be available for students at the specially discounted price of £50 each.
Culture24 welcome postgraduate students taking Museum Studies or a related discipline to apply for one of the five subsidised tickets.
To apply for these tickets, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 26th August with

Culture24 will email all applicants on Monday 29th August notifying those who have been successful.
