The Platform is a new software system being developed by and for the community arts and cultural development sector in Australia. It is one of three major sector development projects funded in 2013 by the Australia Council as part of the National Sector Development Initiative.

To get things started we are inviting everyone to create a profile and tag themselves using the new tag sets developed for the system. The Platform is powered by Feral Arts’ PlaceStories software engine (www.placestories.com). PlaceStories members can simply log in with your existing username and password to join.

You can follow and contribute to the development of all the features that go to make up The Platform. You can keep up to date with the testing and development and feature releases by following on Twitter @theplatformAU

The Platform is being built and released in stages over three years (2013 – 2015). The development is being overseen and supported by a national Technology Working Group of artists, partners and stakeholders from across the country. More info….
