Arts Futures is a summer seminar series co-hosted by Interactive Ontario and the Cultural Human Resources Council in Toronto and Ottawa. It provides arts-focused digital skills and strategy training for artists, arts & culture organizations and interactive digital media producers. Wondering about arts applications for digital technologies such as virtual reality or blockchain? Arts Futures has you covered! Each session will feature two presentations related to the theme for that week and will offer a networking lunch between presentations. 

Our hope is that participants will connect with each other and perhaps spark the beginning of new collaborations under Canada Council for the Arts' Digital Strategy Fund.

The Toronto editions of each session will be livestreamed for those outside of Toronto and Ottawa - you may sign up for a livestream reminder here.

The series will wrap with an evening networking event featuring a closing keynote by Jarryd Huntley on art and video games - August 29 in Toronto and August 30 in Ottawa. 

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
