The BBC and Arts Council England have teamed up to launch a new service for mobile, tablet, PC and connected TV called The Space . The service is also available on digital television in the UK and is accessible via the BBC’s ‘ Red Button ‘ function for TV too. The experimental idea is aimed at allowing artists and cultural organisations to capture and distribute their own work on the platform. The Space is the result of a four-year Public Value Partnership between the BBC and Arts Council England. The initial idea was to create ‘a new era of public engagement in the arts’, and to build digital capacity and skills within the arts sector.
