Grant Description

The Digital Literacy and Intelligence component supports the arts sector in building digital knowledge, skills and capacity. It supports Canadian artists, groups and arts organizations in their efforts to:

  • respond more effectively to the challenges, issues and opportunities of the digital era;
  • develop and broaden their strategic digital thinking;
  • strengthen their ability to translate that thinking into sustainable, concrete actions.
