As the arts and culture landscape swiftly evolves, leaps in technological innovation are opening exciting new doors of possibility – from being able to drastically alter the way a production might look, to exploring new ways of sharing art beyond a set venue, to the many ways an organization can tap into digital resources to enhance the guest experience.

Join representatives from the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada as they provide an overview of three major Digital Strategy initiatives: the Digital Stage, the Digital Reach, and the Performing Arts Digital Lab.

Digital Stage

The Digital Stage sought to understand how technologies are already impacting the performing arts, and how future technologies might further disrupt the sector. Through two major research initiatives – the environmental scan and the horizon scan – we explore the means by which these technologies can help companies deepen engagement with patrons, to share art with the world and innovate how we do business. The Digital Stage allows organizations to explore the boundless possibilities offered by digital technology and to learn how it can be incorporated into every facet of the arts – from the stage, to the studio, to administration. 

Digital Reach

Digital Reach is an exciting, multi-organization project to examine how the arts and culture sector can use screen technologies and aims to explore ways that arts organizations can use their content to connect with new and existing audiences.

Performing Arts Digital Lab

The natural evolution of the Digital Stage and the Digital Reach, the Performing Arts Digital Lab seeks to create an innovation hub where artists and organizations can build the necessary skills to begin integrating technology into artistic practice. 

Participants will also have an opportunity to interact with some of the technologies explored in Digital Stage and Digital Reach, and how they may be incorporated into the nascent Performing Arts Digital Lab.
