Take advantage of artificial intelligence

Be in control of your metadata




Partner

A new digital landscape

How "find-ability" works on the Web is changing with machine learning and artificial intelligence. Is your website ready? At Culture Creates we know your time is valuable so we do the bulk of the work for you. We make all your events "find-able" on the Web. We do this for everyone in the performing arts and culture sector in Canada. Working together, we collect public data and put it in a cooperative owned by arts organizations. We place you in control of your metadata.

The arts need to be ready.
Don't let your events fall off the face of the Web!

Our vision

A sustainable future for arts in Canada.

What drives us

Imagine a unified, informative way for the nation’s art and culture to present itself on the Internet. Imagine enterprise platforms like Expedia, AirBnB, Lifespeak, and League being able to include cultural events within their offers in every city across Canada. Imagine arts organizations being able to offer local cultural events on these enterprise platforms throughout the country reaching millions of Canadians.
