Lincoln was involved in the Kultivate and Kultur projects, shaping infrastructure and polices for Arts repositories, metadata and research data. The strand is being revived by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), who ran a workshop “Does my data look good in this? Exploring research data management in the creative arts”. There was lively discussion about what actually constituted arts research data, including a range of opinions about selection of both data and outputs for preservation and dissemination. Some interesting examples of good practice were shared. The materials are available as a ‘virtual goody bag‘.
