ARTS BC DigistARTS: Digital Literacy Workshop
Building digital-ready organizations and arts practices
Designed in partnership with Nordicity, Arts BC’s DigistARTS workshops are designed to help BC arts organizations and artists:
- Get comfortable with digital (if you’re not already) and determine learning needs.
- Think strategically about the role of digital tools in their organizations (and/or practice) and the evolving opportunities offered by digital developments.
- Raise awareness about the ways to optimize digital tools and approaches which respond to current trends, such as: audience engagement and development, marketing and communications, content development, organizational effectiveness, partnership brokerage, fundraising, etc.
During this workshop, participants will:
- Learn about the DigistARTS project: what is it?
- Discuss the future of digital: what are we talking about, current trends, evolving opportunities, predicting the road ahead, and what do we mean by digital literacy;
- Identify local opportunities, challenges and gaps: a rotating table-top exercise will explore several themes, including digital engagement and marketing, organizational effectiveness, partnerships and collaboration, expanding reach and building audiences through digital tools and content development;
- Discuss the top priority digital literacy needs and most relevant learning approaches.
