That’s a wrap!

What a whirlwind! Thank you to everyone who attended the first Digital Arts Services Symposium. Participant feedback is now in, and we are proud to share that more than  90% of survey respondents said they would like to attend the next edition of the Symposium in 2018.

Positive testimonials also include:

  • “I think I’m more comfortable talking about digital initiatives now. So much more confident going into a website/data management redesign process for my organization.”
  • “Buzzing with ideas and excited by the connections made at DASS17!”
  • “The Symposium was well thought out and informative”
  • “A very good conference”
  • “I loved the mix of formats, panels, presentations, and breakouts”
  • “Both wrap-up sessions on Day 1 and Day 2 were great! I loved hearing what other people in the room were thinking of and sharing!”
  • “I was so pleased to receive such practical advice about managing digital projects!”
  • “The panel discussions had lots of interesting conversation and possible solutions”
  • “At one point during the Symposium, someone said: ‘We were not ready for the Digital Strategy Fund’. I understood this statement in particular way: the readiness we were missing was a readiness for collaboration, for opening up to one another in drastically different ways, for new ethics of partnership. The Symposium contributed to closing this critical gap.”
  • “The Digital Arts Services Symposium was well worth my trip. Thank you to organizers and participants for your generosity.”

Two months to go!

The countdown begins with only two months to go until DASS17: Ottawa!  We are busy updating the website with detailed programming information so come back again soon for more information. We hope to see you in Ottawa and Toronto!
