For those who were unable to attend the Ideas Digital Forum held at the RMG on October 12 and 13, captioned videos of each session are now available for your viewing pleasure!
The symposium, which was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Strategy Fund, was organized by the RMG and the Ontario Association of Art Galleries. Our original question was “how do we effectively use digital technology to help create, engage, and deliver on the core business of public art galleries? ”So we brought together 18 speakers from across Canada, as well as international speakers from England and Germany.
Over sixty people came together to listen to and engage with curators, artists, and educators about the history of digital technologies, what the field looks like today, and where we think things will go in the future. Empty Cup Media was there through it all, deftly recording so that each sessions would be available on line. Feel free to take the opportunity to learn from the experts, share in the conversations, and be inspired!
