Partner Opportunity: Arts Open Data Wiki

We’re looking for a partner to help us make a public database of UK arts and cultural open data.

What’s the Project?

The project has two parts:

1)   Creating a comprehensive list of UK arts and cultural open data sources

2)   Creating an editable website or wiki and publishing the list of open data sources

We’d like the site to be easy to read, easy to edit, and attractive to look at. It should also categorise content through a tagging system. We expect each entry will have a title, a short description of the content, a link to the API and detail data fields, formats, standards and data-set access interfaces.

The project is being funded by an Open Data Innovation Voucher from the Technology Strategy Board. The voucher is for £5,000 and it must be spent with someone (either a company or a sole trader) that we have not previously worked with.

You will need experience of creating lovely, simple websites, an understanding of open data and a good knowledge of the UK arts and cultural sector.

If this sounds like you, please email a short document (no more than one A4 side) telling us about your work and how you intend to approach the project to before 5pm Wednesday 11 September.
