This case study presented for AmbITion Scotland by Hannah Rudman summarises the development of the Edinburgh Summer Festivals’ API, and its impact on app developers, festival audiences and the festivals themselves. A project of Festivals Edinburgh’s Festivalslab, it was one of the first large scale open data initiatives in the arts, cultural, and heritage sectors and heralded a new wave of sector organisations reassessing the more intangible value of their data and opening it up to each other and different sectors, such as digital and interactive, for new uses.
Launched yesterday! The Edinburgh Festivals Innovation Lab (@festivalslab) will run alongside Creative Scotland’s Amb:IT:ion Scotland programme, run by us – Rudman Consulting & Culture Sparks, which currently supports Scottish arts organisations to build their digital capacity and enhance their effectiveness using new technologies. In line with the aims of Amb:IT:ion Scotland, the Innovation Lab will provide organisational capacity, resources and access to expertise, to take advantage of opportunities in digital innovation, technology and culture in order to provide public benefit.
