Take part in the BBC’s Art That Made Us Festival 10 Jan 2022

The BBC is running the Art That Made Us festival throughout April,  in partnership with museums, alongside its landmark television series on the cultural history of the British Isles. Museums are encouraged to sign up, with newly announced benefits including:

  • Access to archive assets on BBC pages on the broad theme of ‘creativity’ which partners can use at their events or as part of their digital offer.
  • Partners can also ask for specific BBC material from BBC Archive and these will be made available subject to research resources and rights.
  • A small number of Festival Partners will also work with the BBC’s R&D team to use tools developed to enhance interactive and immersive digital storytelling. For example Canvas creates beautiful pages bringing together video, audio, gifs and pictures, as demonstrated in stories about Wedgewood’s First Day’s Vase and Scotland’s dancing prisoners of War.

The deadline for submissions to work with the BBC’s R&D team is 28th January. Contact [email protected] with any queries before applying. NMDC (full details of the festival), BBC (sign up as a Festival Partner), BBC (Canvas tool)
