The Digital days aimed to share ideas and approaches to digital technologies for the arts and cultural sectors, and to present the Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture within the Arts Council's wider digital strategy and activities.

In addition to inspiring case studies, and a question and answer session about applying to the Digital R&D fund for arts and culture, there was an opportunity for attendees to network with technology companies that were interested in partnering to develop their ideas.

The Digital days aimed to:

  • encourage new partnerships and collaborations between arts and cultural organisations and technology companies 
  • inform participants about opportunities of using digital technologies
  • provide information on the Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture

Who attended?

The Digital days were open to people working in senior roles within arts and cultural organisations (from England) and especially those who work on planning or producing digital content. This event was also suitable for technology companies that were interested in working with the arts and culture sector.
