This discussion took place at the Digital R&D in the Arts Forum in Manchester Town Hall in February 2013. In this podcast, the panel looks at education and learning. Panellists share their experience of using digital technologies in the arts to improve education and learning outcomes. How can digital technologies help artists and arts organisations capture the attention of learners, young and old? The Digital R&D Fund for the Arts is a £7 million fund for organisations with arts projects based in England working in collaboration with technology providers and researchers. The fund supports new digital research and development projects that aim to expand audience research and/or develop new business models.
