Learn more about ARTCAST:

ARTS2U est une plateforme informative en matière d’événements artistiques et culturels.

Les informations sont rassemblées dans une base de données structurée, puis elles sont transmises aux médias afin que ceux-ci les affichent sur leurs sites web ou les acheminent directement au public, ce qui permet aux producteurs d’événements de gagner du temps et d’éviter de recourir à des intermédiaires.

Scans your Website

After producers opt in, the ARTS2U scans the website for published events.

Producer Approves Data

Producer approves the data before the event is published to ARTS2U and distributed to media.

Data Renders into ARTS2U Feed

Your event is publish onto the ARTS2U feed, appearing in public searches and easy to find by category.

Media Distribution

Feed is distributed to media and public across different channels.

Making Technology Accessible

Technologies including data structuring, natural language processing, AI, and machine learning must be understood and made available to arts producers. ARTS2U is connected with a network of arts producers in multiple disciplines across the country who are participants in the digital transformation of the sector.

What are the Benefits?

The immediate benefit for the arts sector is an improved visibility for arts events. Producers have access to query-able metadata that was previously given away to transnational intermediaries such as Facebook and Google.
