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.
