Digital Arts Services Symposium

Start: 2019-03-15 09:00
End: 2019-03-20 17:00
Place: Toronto
The question of how the arts will thrive in an increasingly digital world transcends conventional borders. ArtsPond is pleased to announce the vision of the second Digital Arts Services Symposium / Symposium des services d'arts numériques 2019 (DASSAN19) in Toronto, Canada. With a theme of “All digits on deck”, global communities of arts and technology enthusiasts are invited to Toronto to activate and manifest a shared digital future from March 15-20, 2019.

The goals for DASSAN19 are to promote cross-sectoral alliances while bolstering digital literacy and delving deeper into the design of collective solutions that reflect the diverse realities of artists and professionals working across disciplinary silos. Through a wide array of activities, DASSAN19 provides opportunities to learn from inspirational stories, engage in critical reflection, and strive for practical transformation for the locally and globally-minded.

Whether you are you a functioning technophobe, a budding digital innovator, or a grey-haired geek, DASSAN19 is made for you. Save the date for featured events including a bootcamp for fledgling digital devotees (March 15-17, 2019), plus spirited international dialogues and industry exchanges during the main Symposium (March 18-20, 2019). Delegates can anticipate compelling discussions on topics such as applications of open source, open data, and machine learning platforms, the evolution of collective governance alternatives for digital arts services such as platform coops, new directions in funding the digital transformation of the arts, uprooting gaps in digital literacy, and much more.
