Join us for our free ARTS2U – Developing Connections and Collaborations Among Digital Initiatives (DCCADI) Webinar, taking place as a moderated web conference. Moderator and theatre creator Johanna Nutter will host and interview an expert panel comprised of the DCCADI project team members. Experts will be ARTS2U Project Manager Daniel Webster, ELAN’s Executive Director Guy Rodgers, ELAN Program Manager Swati Khanna and Technology Developer Robert Brockie.

The Webinar will be open to the ELAN membership and to participants nationally in the DCCADI research project. This included artists and producers from all regions of Canada and from a range of arts disciplines. Participation is limited so please confirm you participation in advance of January 10th 2020.

Following a presentation by the ELAN panel and preliminary questions from the moderator, there will be a few pre-selected questions addressed to the panel, which should give a full understanding of DCCADI and ARTS2U. We will follow with live questions from those attending the webinar.

At the end of the webinar, we will be opening up beta access to all of those in attendance, and will give a brief tutorial how to sign-up for the ARTS2U site. We encourage you to provide your feedback on the webinar through  the online survey that will be made available to all participants.

ARTS2U is a project for artists and producers to take back control of the data they create, and use the aggregated metadata to their advantage. The accumulated metadata and the aggregated user base becomes a resource to develop more effective sales, resulting in profitability for arts producers.

With the Developing Connections & Collaborations Among Digital Initiatives (DCCADI) project, ELAN’s ARTS2U has worked with Canada-wide digital initiatives in the arts. ELAN has forged strong relationships among similar projects with the review of data structures, research of commonalities, strategic alignments, and best practices. The ARTS2U & DCCADI initiative provides recommendations for the benefit of Canadian artists and organizations seeking to have increased visibility on digital platforms.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
