The Kultivate project is part of the Kultur consortium and the talk was entitled “An Introduction to the Potential of Linked Data.”
The Kultur consortium is a collaboration between the University of Southampton, the University of the Arts London, the University for the Creative Arts and the Visual Arts Data Service. Its
aim is to create a repository model for research findings in the creative and applied arts. The repository will be available to a range of performing arts institutions and also to museums and galleries.
The Kultur consortium has a wide remit and is working at both a detailed level, for example examining software configuration, and at a high level, determining policies for information dissemination and deposit.
The consortium is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) which provides leadership and support for the use of I.T. in post-16 and Higher Education establishments in the U.K.
