>> *CultureStake* is a web app for community decision making around
>> culture:
>>
>> *For Communities *
>>
>> We *create* an *appetite* for culture by encouraging communities to
>> explore and learn together what we want to experience in our localities.
>> For example, how might a theatre audience cast a play differently or a park
>> community curate a public art exhibition?
>>
>> *For Cultural Organisations *
>>
>> We *facilitate* a deeper and richer, more open consultation with the
>> communities cultural organisations work for. For example, a city council
>> might need to find out which new artwork should occupy a recently vacated
>> public plinth. Or an arts organisation might need to know which artist on
>> their shortlist should be next summer’s blockbuster.
>>
>> *For All *
>>
>> We *create data commons* that widens the conversation about how art is
>> valued by different communities around the world.
>>

>>
>> *A Portfolio of Cultural Communities *
>>
>> Over time we aim to add *thousands of cultural experiences* to the *CultureStake
>> portfolio* in league with other cultural communities. Cultural
>> organisations can add to this with new artist commissions or pick from the
>> portfolio. This will allow artists and arts organisations to explore and
>> test new ideas in new contexts and enable projects to be easily picked up
>> in different locations with different communities.
>>
>> *Vote Weighting For People in Places*
>>
>> Any *voting event* can apply vote weighting in a number of different
>> scenarios. This means for example, that those closest to the issues can
>> have their vote weighted to mean more overall. For instance, local votes
>> might be given more weight in an international selection process for a new
>> public artwork.
>>
