Watch this video case study of The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s digital development journey. They undertook the AmbITion Approach (designed by Hannah Rudman), beginning the process 2 years ago with AmbITion Scotland. With all changes fully and implemented and embedded in practice by March 2012, they have launched their fantastic new online showcase, broadcast.rcs.ac.uk.

http://www.fiveminutetheatre.com was a virtual live theatre project powered by webcasting and standard Scottish bandwidth! The National Theatre Scotland celebrated their 5th birthday by showing online 24 hours of live 5 minute pieces of theatre, by anyone, for everyone. My other company Envirodigital have been the technical consultants, and producers. To provide an insight and case study of how we’ve pulled this event together, NTS have built up a video blog over the weeks.

Hannah will be speaking at The British Council’s Edinburgh Showcase 2011, on a panel on the use of digital media in the arts. This will be available to a worldwide audience as a webcast – by Envirodigital, of course!
It’s that time of year again for Hannah Rudman to sum up the 2010 digital developments in the cultural sector. Generally, we’ve seen more audience participation online and in venue, and digital access to culture becoming a mainstream activity.
Here’s my pick of the main developments in each art form: for more detail on what individual arts organisations have been up to, especially in Scotland, visit the AmbITion Scotland website for video case studies.
Merce Cunningham dancer Daniel Madoff has constructed a very nifty website for touring dancers and their fans. He explains:
“Touringdancers.com is targeted specifically at touring dance companies and their audiences. It features a combined company calendar in which the viewer can see multiple company calendars side by side. The benefit for dancers is that they can locate their fellow dancers and friends. The benefit for audiences is that they can locate their favorite companies abroad. They can even search by city if they know they will be in a specific foreign town at a specific time.
The site also features a forum section, where anyone can write about his or her favorite places to eat, sites to see, or things to do in highly toured cities. We strongly encourage readers to add their own postings so all users benefit from each other’s expertise about one city or another. This is a chance not only for dancers to exchange ideas, but for people interested in dance to have a positive effect on the people who bring them so much joy.
The site is also interested in adding new dance companies to the schedule so it can become a larger resource. “
