In this paper we present ongoing research into the development of a linked data repository of cultural narratives. Drawing from both modern and historical sources we expand on earlier work automatically generating RDF from TEI performance texts. Building on this foundation we employ a crowdsourcing methodology to correct errors in the descriptions and enhance the data with information which cannot be drawn from the text. We present this approach as a way to facilitate correction through the 'many hands' approach while also enabling us to analyse, explore and highlight the diversity of interpretation that exists for a text. In doing so we present an open resource aimed at supporting and inspiring new humanities, social science and computer science scholarship.
