Digital Now! is a series of digital literacy workshops we’ll be running in March/April 2022. Open to artists of all disciplines, the series will offer FREE three-day workshops in Fredericton, Miramichi, Saint John and Moncton, exploring the creative possibilities of various digital creative platforms.
We’ve invested a lot into new play development over the years but have done little to support artists working in the area of design. Through a grant we received from the Canada Council for the Arts, we put this program together to make digital art education a real possibility for all NB artists, not just theatre folks!
On top of this, participants in the workshops will be able to then submit project proposals for a digital art showcase we’ll be hosting later in the year. Successful projects will receive one of ten $5000 commissions to create new work based on or informed by the tools presented in the workshops. ALL ARTISTS INTERESTED IN SUBMITTING PROPOSALS MUST TAKE ATTEND THE FREE TRAINING.
