The core idea of a Digital Public Space is that it could give everyone, everywhere, unrestricted access to an open resource of culture and knowledge. This vision has emerged from ideas around building platforms for engagement around cultural archives, but has the potential to become something much wider.
This masterclass helps you to learn a bit more about the history and current premise of the Digital Public Space in a masterclass with Bill Thompson of the BBC’s archives and commentator on BBC World radio programme, Click. The live and online audiences consider and debate how it could give better open access to knowledge and culture at the end of Bill’s talk. Watch to learn about what the open web might mean for citizens and the cultural sector.
The original AmbITion Scotland event took place in Inverness, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Enterprise on 31.10.2013.
