Art UK was excited to launch Tagger in the summer of 2022.
Tagger is a crowdsourcing initiative in which users of Art UK are invited to tag artworks with descriptive words. Tags only go live once they are verified by others, making it an easy, collaborative and safe process.
Most of the artworks on Art UK only have a small number of tags, while many artworks have no tags at all. Therefore, Taggers contribute to making Art UK more searchable by identifying things, places, people and events. Taggers may also discover new art and artists along the way.
