The Space was intended to provide a digital platform for arts organisations to expand into digital works, to increase the audiences for new works, and to build digital capacity within the sector. This evaluation reveals that the project fell seriously short of its aims in its first year; with generally safe (rather than innovative or experimental) content and disappointing audiences which in some cases fell far short of an organisations own web traffic, and in 35 cases (out of 50 commissions) failed to reach an audience of 2000.
