The interConnect resources are online!

During the summer and fall of 2023, interConnect brought together artists, arts professionals, and organizations to share and build knowledge about digital projects and practices. +INFO interConnect | Project Overview

Many insights and conversations are now available on Praxis, a platform for discovering and sharing knowledge for a more collaborative and open society. Anyone is also encouraged to contribute to this shared community resource! [Praxis, How-to Guide by IMAA]  *Note: Praxis’ interface is only in French, but an English interface should be available soon!

All the material produced as part of the initiative is now available! Here are links to the main resources:

Key takeaway for IMAA
interConnect allowed for a vast consultation and mobilization of the arts community. The creation of the discussion areas was an important milestone to reflect on the impact of digital technology within our sector and the co-learning group structure was a much-needed framework for information exchange and collaboration. 

The project’s focus was ambitious and priorities were, sometimes, difficult to establish. As an organization, interConnect improved IMAA’s capacity for collective inquiry by giving us an opportunity to revise many of our internal processes and test a new collective knowledge base system. Through these learnings, we strengthened our understanding of the role we play within the arts sector.
