Leveraging the power of new technologies to foster artists prosperity!
There are more buzzwords than bees on the globe these days. Between algorithms and zettabytes there is a dizzying haze of technolanguage swarming the domains of art and culture, but we do not have to be overwhelmed!
At Artengine, we believe artists can and should be an important part of the digital transformation of society, not only helping us navigate the transformation of our contemporary lives, but leading the charge.
The Digital Economies Lab is a year-long exploration of the wonders and anguish of making art and culture in the 21st century. The lab focuses on new ways for artists, arts organizations, collectives and even old institutions to thrive among the tsunami of digital technologies overtaking our lives.
This lab poses the question:
How can artists
make a place for themselves
in the digital context of
Canada or the world itself?
There are many possible answers to this inquiry, opening up countless sub-questions, including:
How might an artist might multiply themselves so they can get more done?
How could you start a collective made up of more bots than people?
How we might build more creative relationships with monetization?
But perhaps most importantly, how we can get technology to help make artists’ lives a little less precarious?
