Why we have changed our name to workculture

workculture started life as a pandemic project.

As the job numbers on artsjobsonline dwindled and organisations struggled, we looked at ways we could offer more to our audience – opportunities to learn as well as work. The idea for workculture was born.

workculture is designed for people who work – and who are looking for work – in the UK’s culture sector.

Maintaining a focus on jobs and opportunities, workculture will also feature courses, events and stories from cultural organisations in the UK and beyond.

But why change the name?

We found that both the words ‘arts’ and ‘jobs’ were limiting what we could offer.

The word ‘online’ served us well when we first launched as an alternative to print advertising over 20 years ago.

workculture gives us the opportunity to embrace a wider range of cultural organisations and present a more complete picture of this vital sector.

We will miss artsjobsonline (it did what it said on the tin!) but it’s time to broaden our horizons.

A big thank you to our friends at Pooka & Co for all their hard work developing and launching the new website.

Welcome to workculture.
