Tech4Culture promotes and supports creatives and technologists in Turkey and the UK to develop digital collaborations that provides access to arts and culture for the widest possible audience. 

Building on the first edition of Tech4Culture, the programme connects a UK creative agency with a cultural institution from Turkey to develop a user-centred, participatory and socially inclusive digital engagement opportunity. 

Following the open call for proposals in Turkey and the UK, the Burdur Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism and Wire will collaborate in 2019 to create a digital platform that will ensure the culture and heritage of Burdur will be seen by wider audiences. 

Tech4Culture 2017

The British Council have identified a high level of interest and need for collaborative arts and technology projects across the cultural sector in Turkey. Seeking to build upon the UK’s international reputation for digital innovation, the British Council in collaboration with Technology Development Foundation of Turkey, The Audience Agency and Outlandish curated a series of events to inspire arts and technology communities to foster digital collaborations for audience development in the Cultural sector in Istanbul between March 2016 and 2017. Tech4Culture consisted of five cumulative events, which were designed to inspire, provide opportunities for professional development, international exchange, digital development and dissemination of learning.

Equal Opportunity and Diversity

The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide. Our work involves developing relationships with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. Working effectively with diversity and promoting equality of opportunity is therefore an essential part of our work.

We have developed a number of policies to promote equality and diversity and we use a range of tools to monitor and evaluate our progress in mainstreaming these. We believe the best way to manage equal opportunity and diversity is to ensure that they are built into all processes and functions, considered part of all policy decisions, and present in the planning of all programmes from start to finish. This is what we mean by mainstreaming equality and diversity principles and practices.
