A day of discussion on digital strategy  

IMAA in partnership with CQAM

Dates: April 27 2017

Following the federal government’s public consultations on digital cultural strategy as well as the Canada Council’s new program architecture and the creation of its Digital Fund for the Arts ($88.5M over 4 years), this day of discussion brings together the media arts community to reflect on the impact of digital tools and practices on our sector. This event, organized in collaboration with the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM), will be held in both languages ​​so that stakeholders from across Canada can participate.

The following questions will be discussed at the roundtable:

  • What vision and strategies does the media arts community wish to put forward in terms of digital tools and practices?
  • How do cultural policies apply to independent art?
  • How can we ensure that funds made available through Canadian digital cultural policy can serve media artists and organizations?
  • What types of initiatives would you like to submit to the Digital Fund?

Discussion workshops will give voice to members of the film and digital arts communities. Notetakers will summarize the discussions at the end of the day. Documents concerning the meeting will be sent to you at the beginning of April.

A lunch will be served on site and we will end the day with a drink at l’Gros Luxe.

We thank the Canada Council for the Arts for their support in making this event possible.
