Event Description

Kelowna, BC: Taking place on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Syilx/Okanagan People, Arts BC is pleased to present in collaboration with ARTSCO its DigistARTS Workshop on Tuesday, June 18th from 2-4pm at the Library. The majority of arts organizations cite a lack of funding as a barrier to digital readiness while remaining largely unaware of free tools to support their work (many of which can save time and free up staff capacity). Furthering an understanding of how digital can help arts practices is the main goal of the DigistARTS program. Developed in collaboration with its audience, designed in partnership with Nordicity and funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, Arts BC's DigistARTS program is designed to build digital literacy in the arts and culture sector across BC in order to identify ways of addressing key gaps and bridging the digital divide. Arts BC is offering a series of learning opportunities around BC with the following aims in mind: * To understand how the ongoing digital disruption within the arts ecosystem is affecting organizations * To share learning across organizations grappling with digital literacy and capacity issues * To develop strategic digital thinking in arts organizations around the province * To raise awareness about ways to use digital tools to foster collaboration, community and entrepreneurship * To cultivate creative ecosystems – i.e. bridging arts and culture with technology (and other) sectors The workshop in Kelowna will share the newly released findings on digital readiness of artists and arts organizations in B.C. and offer an opportunity to contribute towards the development of digital tools and resources. To read the survey report, please visit artsbc.org The workshop costs $15 to attend and those interested can register below.
