Thanks to our Partners

ArtsAPI has been made possible by the contributions of some amazing partners:

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Housed in a landmark industrial building on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, BALTIC is a major international centre for contemporary art. BALTIC has no permanent collection, providing instead an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions and events that give a unique and compelling insight into contemporary artistic practice. BALTIC’s dynamic, diverse and international programme ranges from blockbuster exhibitions to innovative new work and projects created by artists working within the local community.

Drawing on the radical and subversive creative energy running through its arts activities, Islington Mill also has a reputation for putting on legendary experimental gatherings, events and parties. Based in the evocative buildings and courtyard of a former Victorian mill, Islington Mill is a unique and inspiring environment where the architecture of industrial Britain is fused with the creative energy of industrious artists at work and at play.


The arts partners worked with the core team of FutureEverything, Swirrl and University of Dundee from the outset to give feedback on the project as it developed. They attended various workshops to input into the design, offered online support, advice and comment when requested and supplied various data sets for us to test the tool. Their invaluable input ensured we developed a tool that worked for every type of arts organisation, and for every size of organisation.
