At the top of this session, Nik Nanos, Chief Data Scientist and Founder of Nanos Research, shared the latest findings of the Arts Response Tracking Survey, a partnership between Business / Arts, the National Arts Centre and Nanos Research, which polled over 1,000 Canadians to gauge their attitudes on returning to and supporting the arts across Canada.
We were also joined by leaders from three arts organizations who have kept their audiences engaged remotely and adapted their programming to a virtual format. We explored what types of digital alternatives are available, as well as the opportunities and challenges that exist within them.
