Digital Arts Summit

The Digital Arts Services Symposium in Toronto in 2018 was supported by facilitation from UKAI Projects and our Ferment team. The event brought together national and international digital arts service organizations to continue the evolution of a repository of collective skills and knowledge. The structure celebrated facilitated dialogues with like-minded individuals alongside unexpected, serendipitous exchanges between diverse, underserved communities and inspired digital champions.

Through play and storytelling, had the opportunity to identify digital literacy practices that maximize their potential for creative, non-lateral thinking without being limited by technical know-how.

The event was supplemented with critical case studies, practical workshops, and strategic alliance building opportunities. Arts professionals and cultural heritage workers had the opportunity to strengthen their personal digital toolboxes while building cross-sectoral collaborations that rethink the status quo in adapting available technologies to manifest new digital realities.
