Ten projects were funded through the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts in Scotland. This report from the CReATeS research consortium outlines the processes and outcomes associated with the programme.

Key findings:

  • The report explores innovations in audience engagement; sales and marketing; and service delivery.
  • Lessons learned relate to project scope and expectations, choosing digital experts, balancing innovation and project management, and legacy creation.

The Consortium for Research into Arts and Technology in Scotland (CReATeS) is a group of researchers from the Universities of Stirling, St Andrews and Strathclyde.

The research focused on the collaboration between individual arts and cultural organisations and their technology partners; the relationship between the collaborations instigated by the Fund and the cultural ecology in Scotland, the UK and internationally; and the methodologies and approaches employed in the analysis of research, development and innovation in arts and cultural organisations.

Each of the ten projects supported by the Digital R&D Fund had research input from a CReATeS member. A report from each project is now available, as well as a report on the programme overall.
