Linked Digital Future - Un avenir numérique lié

Digital Navigation Program

The Digital Navigation Program is a single-window access to one-on-one digital literacy and digital transformation services for performing arts and service organizations. Digital navigators can help organizations gain clarity about their digital needs and opportunities. Upon certain conditions, organizations may also benefit from the guidance of a coach as they take action upon those needs or opportunities.

The Digital Navigation Program supplements other services and activities within the Linked Digital Future initiative, such as the Digital Discoverability Program and the Digital Shift workshops. Performing arts organizations are allowed and encouraged to benefit from as many Linked Digital Future services and activities as they desire.

Who this is for

The Digital Navigation Program is for performing arts producing and presenting organizations as well as arts service organizations.

There is no eligibility criteria. If…

  • You have specific digital needs;
  • You have other business needs for which there might exist a digital solution;
  • There is some digital opportunity you would like to seize; or
  • You are simply curious to know what you don’t know (yet);

… Then the digital navigation program is for you.

How to apply

  1. Complete our LDF Digital Maturity Assessment and write down the two numbers for your Digital Culture and Digital Intensity
