Welcome to Cultivate Interactive

Cultivate Interactive is a Web magazine which was funded under the European Commission's Digital Heritage and Cultural Content (DIGICULT) programme. The magazine has reached the end of its programme and has ceased activity. However back issues will continue to be available.


Nine issues of the Cultivate Interactive ejournal were published between July 2000 and February 2003. The project manager was Brian Kelly. The editors were Marieke Napier (issues 1-6) and Richard Waller (issues 7-9).


Following the cessation of funding for Cultivate Interactive the Web site was prepared for archiving. This included disabling a number of technical features (such as the search facility) which would not function if the site were hosted elsewhere. In addition a series of annual link check reports were published in order to monitor the internal consistency of the Web site.

The Web site was migrated from a Windows NT platform (based on the MS SiteServer software together with .ASP scripts) to a Unix server where the Web site is hosted as a series of static pages.

The Web site will subsequently be migrated to the UK Web Archive.
