Culture Is Digital policy paper
"Culture Is Digital" is a policy paper written by By the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Rt Hon. Matt Hancock. Published in March 2018, this paper is an optimistic and encouraging document that sets out how how heritage organisations, museums, galleries and theatres will gain access to cutting-edge technology and digital skills training to help them improve and reach new and diverse audiences.
The author puts it very succinctly in his opening lines “The UK’s future will be built at the nexus of our artistic and cultural creativity and our technical brilliance.” This, we believe is the core of what Heritage Creative is all about, preserving our culture and heritage through digital means. He then goes on to demonstrate, with evidence, that this combination of technology-driven preservation is a key driving force behind the UK’s long term economic prospects.
