Interested in culture?

Of course you are! I recently picked up my first copy of Monocle magazine and was blown away by the quality of text, images and content. It’s hard to explain what Monocle is about as it covers lots of different grounds, but it has an excellent Culture section which shows you interesting projects happening all over the world right now. This month they focus on the trend of museums becoming places of social gathering rather than to educate. So pick up a copy if you can. They’ve also got a great website which you can access here, although content can be restricted.

This exciting move by the BBC will bring the public closer to what’s happening on the culture scene across the country, and provide the sector with a greater platform for publicity.
