CoStar the global platform
Building a sustainable future for the arts in the UK

Showcase has secured the rights to introduce the CoStar global platform to the UK’s cultural sector with the potential to transform access to the arts, increase diversity and generate significant income at this challenging time for artists, performers and venues.
CoStar is a digital audience engagement platform powered by Padlokt, a proven technology that has been adopted by the US National Basketball Association and regularly reaches global audiences of 400 million people in 130 countries.
The CoStar platform is an exciting opportunity to foster diversity in the cultural sector and build on the new audiences that have discovered the arts during lockdown. It provides arts organisations with a fully managed integrated platform that can deliver a vast range of creative content. From community focused two-way master classes and workshops delivered in high-definition, broadcast quality to audience conversations with artists and performers to transmitting live performances from venues, content from museums and galleries and introduce audiences to ‘behind the scenes back-stage experiences and live charity and fundraising events.
