We are the Interactive Cultures research team from the Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research at Birmingham City University. Team members on this project include Professor Tim Wall, Dr Paul Long, Dr Nick Webber, and Dr Simon Barber.

This blog reports on some research and evaluation work funded by the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA), the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Arts Council England (ACE). Our job is to evaluate a research and development project called Culture Cloud, a partnership between New Art Exchange, a Nottingham-based art gallery, and Artfinder, a technology start-up focused on the art marketplace. We also have the opportunity to conduct some research of our own, into the culture of both art and technology organisations, the nature of partnerships between them, and the consumption of art both on- and offline. The project runs until 1st October 2012.
