Evolution of the Arts in a Digital World Symposium

July 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra’s Evolution of the Arts in a Digital World Symposium is coming directly to your homes and offices, with webinar-style presentations every Wednesday morning starting in September.

With experts from organizations like ARUP, Gallagher & Associates, and the Edmonton Public Library, our symposium will showcase local and national digital talents, and encourage the implementation of digital storytelling and engagement throughout arts organizations.

Who Should Attend?

We encourage arts organizations to join us in national conversation about the ways in which organizations can confidently and creatively include digital technology in their everyday functions. Our symposium is aimed towards a variety of participants, including:

  • CEOs who want to understand how to introduce digital initiatives to their organizations in ways that will connect patrons to their organizational purpose and story. 
  • General Managers who want to understand how to create teams for digital operations, who needs to be involved in decisions regarding digital initiatives, and what the end benefits are of going digital.
  • Educators who want to expand their outreach activities to include imaginative and curriculum-focused digital learning experiences.
  • Audience Engagement Teams who want to find new ways to share their stories with patrons in meaningful, memorable ways.
  • Everyone who wants to understand the power that creatively used technology can have on a patron’s experience at, memory of, and affection for an organization.

Together, we will learn to navigate digital transformation, explore relevant and affordable technologies, and engage with knowledgeable and fascinating presenters. This series will help arts organizations and other not-for-profits determine how and when to use digital technology to enhance their organization and tell their stories.

Watch our website and social media for more information, coming soon!

This symposium is made possible thanks to a generous grant from Canada Council for the Arts.
