Arts in Digital Spaces


Workshop Series


Welcome to the Arts in Digital Spaces Program, a project of the Forum of Regional Arts Councils of Minnesota, and your Regional Arts Council. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in Phase 1 of this program and completed the questionnaire! The information submitted has been used to inform the content of the next digital experience, and what's needed in order to bring your art online. Phase 1 closed on October 16, 2020.

Phase 2 of the program continues here: Listen & Learn (and ask questions....)

The Arts in Digital Spaces workshop series continues with two webinars responding to the immense amount of data from the Phase 1 Questionnaire.

Webinar #2 - How to Create Vibrant Virtual Events

November 16th, 12 noon release -

This webinar was recorded in July 2020, and details cutting edge ideas for creating and sharing virtual events with your audiences and patrons. Runtime is 107 mins, with a chapter heading for video scrubbing (fast-forwarding). This session is available On-Demand through the calendar year.

How to Create Vibrant Virtual Events


Other dates you’ll need to know:

December 2020 - Phase 3: Breakout Sessions - 3 identical sessions throughout December for maximum participation. Limited to 50 participants per session (selected by your regional arts council), each organization should plan to attend ONE session. This is YOUR chance to interact with content-specific breakout sessions and a master Open Voices facilitator, and is a step toward more direct question/answer regarding your specific Digital needs. 

January-April 2021 - Phase 4: Group Coaching Workbook Module - Participants will enter cohorts of 4-6 organizations which will meet and follow a prescribed workbook module, taking a specific project or activity from birth to fruition over the course of 3 sessions, scheduled intently with the cohort. Creating a vibrant YouTube channel for their art, beginning a new Instagram educational program, building a virtual gallery exposition--all projects are welcome, and the group-coaching cohorts will be led by an Open Voices team member with experience and insight into making this project a reality.
