Charting the future of the arts in a digital world Digital technologies have a major impact on how we work, communicate and engage with our community, with citizens, with the world , and the arts sector in Canada is no exception. How can the arts be amplified, adapt and thrive in the digital world? The Canada Council for the Arts is organizing The Arts in a Digital World Summit to answer these questions and more.
A pivotal role for digital in the arts The Canada Council has committed to amplify the quality, scale and sharing of Canadian art through digital technology. Now we’re asking the arts community to help us define how we collectively go about it. The Summit will be an opportunity for sharing, innovation, re-imagining and seeding new collaborations. We’ll also introduce our new Digital Fund, launching in Fall 2017.
STARTING A CONVERSATION
A gathering to innovate The Summit will initiate a series of crucial conversations within the arts community. To get the conversation started, we have invited some 250 artistic and administrative leaders in the Canadian arts sector, as well as digital experts and strategic thinkers, to represent the vast diversity of the sector and to contribute to the testing and understanding of our new Digital Fund for the arts.
