Canada Council announces $88.5-million Arts in a Digital World fund

In 2014, the newly appointed head of the Canada Council for the Arts spoke of the need for the art world to innovate and reach out to younger audiences. “Traditional companies,” Simon Brault told The Globe and Mail then, “have to engage a new generation or they will die.”

Brault’s vision of a modernized, plugged-in arts sector became clearer Thursday with the announcement of an $88.5-million Arts in a Digital World Fund, 2017-2021. The news of the fund coincides with a major arts sector conference being held Thursday and Friday in Montreal.

“It’s clear that the new generation, the generation of digital natives, has expectations of how they relate to any experience or any content or any moment,” Brault told The Globe this week. “The arts sector needs to master and take advantage of the digital transformation, as opposed to pretend that we are victims of it.”
