Webinar 1: ‘No Going Back’
27 May 2021
The past months have been challenging for all in the arts sector. However, creative approaches to digital making and presenting have evolved, encouraging many to rethink how they work and perhaps, more importantly, how they interact with audiences. Many continue to extend their reach and creative potential. The word ‘hybrid’ has been widely used over the past months and this webinar will focus on new ways of working, ranging from planning to troubleshooting. Presenting work in traditional spaces has continued with many organisations spanning an online offering whilst retaining their connection with partners and audiences.

Webinar 2: Digital: Business End
27 May 2021
With so much availability of digital work, is it possible to monetise such work online? Is it possible to generate income from work that is, to an unprecedented degree, available free of charge? Issues of rights and licensing have also emerged as a consideration for organisations that heretofore, presented work in a live setting where the responsibility rested with the producer of the work. The business end will look at the new and intriguing phenomenon of NFT’s which have reaped massive rewards for many artists who work internationally. This webinar will take a closer look at the financial and business implications of digital production and dissemination.

Webinar 3: Innovation in practice
28 May 2021
This webinar focuses on artists’ and organisational creativity and innovative practices now and in the future. Many artists and organisations have embraced digital and multimedia forms as integral to their work whilst others have adopted it as a way of working, of connecting with audiences and renewing their work. In this webinar, we will hear from digital artists and makers and from those who have adapted and converted their work for online production and dissemination.

Webinar 4 – Dissemination: Who’s looking in?
28 May 2021
This webinar focuses on digital marketing for digital production. Increasingly we are seeing the integration of platforms, ticketing, artistic output or production and marketing. How have audiences been sourced? How are they identified and reached and how does the relationship between producer and presenter of the work change given the pervasiveness of digital making and presenting? What data is it possible to collect and once you have the data, how do you use it? Hear from some practitioners who have found novel ways to engage with and measure audiences – reaching the tens of thousands in some cases.
Chair to be announced shortly
