The Space is a commissioning and development agency supporting the UK arts, cultural and heritage sectors to realise their strategic digital ambitions.

Launched originally by Arts Council England and the BBC, The Space commissions work from arts and cultural organisations with the aim of increasing their audience reach and diversity, using digital distribution and media.

The Space also delivers digital training and development activities for the cultural sector, including workshops and webinars, a strategic mentoring programme, online learning resources and involvement in the New Creatives talent development scheme funded by ACE and the BBC.

The organisation is a key partner in a number of sector initiatives as part of the DCMS Culture is Digital programme, namely the development of a Digital Rights Framework, an Audience Metrics measurement tool to track online audience engagement and a Digital Maturity Index for arts and cultural organisations (the Digital Culture Compass).
