The Space began as a pilot digital arts service and commissioning programme launched in May 2012 by the Arts Council  in partnership with the BBC. It was  conceived and developed as a live, free, and on-demand service through which audiences could access a wide range of arts digitally and, in particular, the London 2012 Festival and Cultural Olympiad.

Relaunched: the new version of The Space was launched in June 2014, and it's live now

The evaluation of the Space pilot showed that it had met its core aims to support digital creativity and experimentation, build digital capacity in the arts,  and connect arts organisations with a wider audience.  The Space is now run by a new independent Community Interest Company and the new Space re-launched on June 13 2014.  The Space will continue to focus on the original core aims of creative experimentation, building capacity and reaching audiences digitally, but with an enhanced emphasis on fostering and supporting innovative and interactive new digital artwork and participation.
