DAY 2: DECEMBER 1, 2017

After two full days of learning and sharing in Ottawa and Toronto, the second and final day in Toronto will turn to helping more digital arts service initiatives off the ground. This day is focused on community as we hear pitches for project ideas at various stages of development, break out into facilitated sessions designed to help you find collaborators and partners, and leave with a road map of what you need to do next to get your project off the ground or take it to the next level. We’ll wrap up the day to present the most promising project voted by the participants with a special award.
