The core idea of a Digital Public Space is that it could give everyone, everywhere, unrestricted access to an open resource of culture and knowledge. This vision has emerged from ideas around building platforms for engagement around cultural archives, but has the potential to become something much wider.

This AmbITion Scotland masterclass helps you to learn a bit more about the history and current premise of the Digital Public Space in a masterclass with Bill Thompson of the BBC's archives and commentator on BBC World radio programme, Click.

Watch to learn about what the open web might mean for citizens and the cultural sector.
