This is a super set of data from Glasgow Arts: years and years of hourly (or almost hourly) footfall figures for the exhibition space at Tramway in Glasgow. It’s never been seen by anyone other than the administrators who log this stuff. What can you turn it into?
What are Glasgow Arts & Tramway?
Glasgow Arts supports the development of arts and cultural activity in the city through supporting individual artists, performers and arts organisations and through actively encouraging access and participation in the arts among the widest possible range of people. The team is also responsible for the artistic programme and a range of educational and participative opportunities at Tramway and Trongate 103. It’s part of Glasgow Life, the trading name of Culture & Sport Glasgow Ltd.
Tramway is an international art-space in Glasgow which commissions, produces and presents contemporary arts projects. Tramway’s vision is to inspire and add to our understanding of today’s world by connecting audiences and artists. It’s a space where you are welcomed to witness, engage, experience, participate, to be challenged and to learn. Tramway is programmed and managed by Glasgow Life and supported by Creative Scotland as a foundation-funded organisation.
What are Glasgow Arts interested in?
We’re going through a process of changing how we gather data. We’re doing a lot more of it, and we need to work out what to do with the data once we’ve got it. We’ll be assessing footfall, audience demographics and gathering audience opinion more effectively and consistently over the coming year. This Tramway dataset is really just the start of it. By Culture Hack Scotland 2013 we hope to have a lot more data that we can share.
For now though, we’re looking for thoughts around how we communicate what we do and have been doing over the past few years.
