Technology and Innovation

Technology has increasingly influenced artistic practice, audience engagement, delivery of arts programmes and services, and how the arts sector operates. The National Arts Council (NAC) supports the exploration and adoption of technology, enables new opportunities to be harnessed and encourages continuous innovation, learning and collaboration between the arts and technology sectors. 

In 2019, NAC partnered Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and IETM (International network for contemporary performing arts), to organise a symposium Digital Technologies in Performing & Live Arts. The symposium encouraged conversations around how the digital revolution challenges our creative practices and production, audience engagement strategies and audiences’ habits.
