Digital adoption is critical to the future of Canada’s art world. The art industry is especially globally connected and with digital and immersive technologies evolving as primary forms of communication, it is prescient to adopt new strategies and practices.
The Canadian Federal Government announced the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) as part of the 2021 budget to assist small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in digitally transforming their businesses. It is an innovative program that will accelerate digital adoption across the country. SMEs can receive up to CAD $15,000 to develop a digital plan that can help them in their digital transformation and achieve their business goals in 2022.
Art Collision has been approved as official consultants for Digital Adoption plans.
Let us guide you to successfully receive financial grant support for your digital growth.
Digital adoption is the process of evolving your business practices to suit the needs of the world today. Art galleries, art collections, artists and institutions around the world use digital methods to successfully connect with clients and improve operations efficiency.
Integrating e-commerce, updating an interactive and responsive website, integrating smart inventory management, and utilising new immersive technologies are a few ways to stay attuned to the needs of your clients. Our world is more connected than ever, and to reach a global audience, your business needs to have a strong and agile digital presence.
