This Canadian programme is based on Culture24’s Let’s Get Real collaborative action research methodology and draws on insights from our sector support around digital skills in this country. Applying this to an international partnership is proving interesting – UK and Canadian arts organisations share many challenges but the solutions need to be tailored to those different contexts.
The Digital Action Research and Training programme (DART) is an opportunity for twenty participants from ten Canadian cultural institutions, including galleries, museums and libraries, to develop their digital skills through experimentation, with ongoing expert mentorship and help throughout the six month programme.
DART is being delivered by Surface Impression, the Art Gallery of Burlington and Dundas Museum & Archives in partnership with Culture24. It is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Strategy Fund.
The DART programme seeks to do three things:
- Nurture the confidence of participating individuals by building the digital literacies they need in their work environments
- Build organizational capacity by supporting participating organizations to identify, design and embed relevant changes
- Foster collaborative working and best practice across relevant peer networks.
