Connecting Audiences to Culture Online or Onsite
Digital technology has the power to make the art and offerings of cultural organizations more accessible – not just to those visiting in person, but to people anywhere. Bloomberg Philanthropies has committed significant support to the development of technology that transforms experiences with cultural institutions around the world. Since 1999, Bloomberg Philanthropies has helped cultural organizations stay up to date with relevant new technology to transform the visitor experience, encouraging interaction and exploration on- and off-site.
As part of ongoing support for cultural institutions, Bloomberg Philanthropies launched the Bloomberg Connects app in November 2019. A free digital guide to museums, galleries, gardens and more, Bloomberg Connects makes it easy to access and engage with arts and culture from mobile devices, anytime, anywhere. The app offers the ability to learn about current exhibitions at a portfolio of participating cultural partners through dynamic content exclusive to each organization. Features include insightful commentary, video highlights, pinch-and-zoom capability, and exhibition and way-finding maps.
With over 350 guides on the app, additional cultural organizations around the world continue to join each month providing thoughtful digital content and information that enriches the visitor experiences.
