Arts Holland – Open Data
Arts Holland unites all the Dutch cultural institutions under one brand, focusing on the interconnection. Working together with multiple major organizations in the field of arts, culture, communication, transport, creative industry and technology, Arts Holland strengthens and supports the services of these existing organizations. Arts Holland enables her partners to excel in their own domains and creates connections and new opportunities.
In addition to the magazine, Arts Holland has developed the website and the Arts Holland Open Data Platform. Arts Holland is the first initiative in Holland which collects data from the tourism and cultural sector to open and link these by means of an Open Data Platform. This platform enables the creation and development of innovative apps for the purposeful cultural tourists to offer appropriate cultural suggestions based on personal preferences, locations and the time of the day.
