The Space: Building a Broadcaster in a Box

"Back in August last year, Tony Ageh asked us a question: 'How would you deliver a 'pop–up' television channel to desktops, mobiles, tablets and connected TVs?'

The typical response, particularly within the BBC, would be a suggestion to re–purpose much of the infrastructure we already have: media ingest, metadata management, transcoding, web publication, device targeting.

There was a snag, though. In fact, there were a couple. First, this wasn't just a pop–up TV channel – this was a 'broadcaster in a box', which could later be handed over to arts organisations to pick up and run with."

(Mo McRoberts, 1 May 2012, BBC)

Save the Arts: a campaign to support the arts in the UK

"The Save the Arts campaign is organised by the London branch of the Turning Point Network, a national consortium of over 2,000 arts organisations and artists dedicated to working together and finding new ways to support the arts in the UK. ...

The first stage of the campaign presents a new video animation by artist David Shrigley highlighting the effect of the funding cuts and a new work by Jeremy Deller with Scott King and William Morris. Each week, the work of a different artist will be released. Mark Wallinger will present the next project.

The costs of David Shrigley's animation have been covered with a grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. All artists engaged in this project have generously donated their time, talent and art."
