*This is HLF funded project lead by the Library and Archive Department
We have the largest archive of British art in the world, from the 1900s to the present day.. 800 collections, over 1 million items.
Used archive content as the basis, the raw material, to encourage broader, deeper engagement with art and cultural heritage, both physically, and digitallyThe vision of the project is.to lead
*New archive galleries funded by the projectArchive gallery, archive drum, digital archive
Since the new galleries have been open, An average of over 5000 visitors in the new spaces per month;Over 2000 people interacted with the materials on the touch screensArchive Explorers have taken nearly 1000 visitors on hour long tours of the archive galleries since they started in August 2014.*Aiming to digitise 52000 pieces from the Archive, in our capture studio, from 79 archives, representing 52 artists.Theyll be published on Art & Artists, cross referenced and hyperlinked to the 67,000 artworks, bringing more context and depth to the art collectionNew Albums feature will enable more engaging and participatory activity
*The collections were selected in conjunction with Tate Learning, and represent a breadth of content from Tate Archive, which is hitherto under-represented.. It includes content from:different regions of the UK, from Scotland to the South West; different themes: rural life, urbanism/industrial landscapes, women artists. The Black British experience, migr experience, popular culture & War & peaceDifferent challenges: different sizes (large & small flat works, 3d objects, time-based) and formats of material (sketches, sketchbook, notebook, letters, postcards, photographs, transparencies, 3d object, audio, video); different Rights issues, in order to fully test and accommodate all those things in this innovative project. Makes up just 1.6% of the archive holdings 52 of the 800 collections
*These are the 52 artists selected, some famous and other less so.*This is provides a glimpse of audience engagement with different areas of Tates online offer.You can see that Art and Artists which is Tates online gallery of images, attract the highest interest at almost 37% of the online audience.Whereas, the current catalogue for the archives attracts 0.05% of the online traffic as would be expected with such a specialised archives, used by academics, art historians and art critics
But by publishing the digitised content through art & artists, we will expose this content to the much larger 37% of users who visit this area of the site. Increasing the breadth of access, and adding content and depth to the exiting art collection at Tate. *Using the new content and functionality as the starting point for a learning project, we are facilitating the Access aspects of the project through a large outreach projectOutreach Learning Programme will pilot and embed this model across the country, with 5 lead partners, representatives from 70+ local organisations & networks, delivering in excess of 280 workshops, to 6600 direct participants
5 lead partners are.**Preservation volunteers and Archive Explorer tour guidesPurpose:Support digitisation process Facilitate access to Archive materialPromote behind the scenes opportunitiesExpand awareness amongst non traditional Tate visitorsProvide training to develop skills and experience
*Lots of internal legacy, that now need to be transferred into Tates Business as usual, and engrained into the fabric of Tate. Need to cascade learning down through departments to take full advantage of the opportunities that the project has afforded us.
Sustainable systems extensible systems, governance, structures, guidelines, models, to continue to digitise archive collections, and put them online over70% of the costs incurred have been to establish these systems.Future digitisation will cost a fraction of the current budget to continue
Features & Functionality This is what is unique about this project integration of art and archive objects into one search function. That sounds very simple, but those of you who have worked on a digitisation know, such integration is often the most difficult to achieve.
Equipment HVDA storage, enhance photography studio, TTP software used in Tate Britain and St Ives and will be featuring in the new Tate Modern.
Expertise rebuilt site in Django, conservation for to prepare material for archive digitisation
New approaches to Tate Business e.g. Creative Commons, PREMIS meta data schema, Transcription tool with Zooniverse (Oxford University)
New measures & mechanisms for engagement with a more diverse volunteer group
New model for participation through the Learning and Outreach programme
