Ontario Association of Art Galleries: Digital Data Mixer

Two-Day Professional Development Online Workshop

Tuesday, July 7 & Wednesday, July 8, 2020

Online Zoom Event


Art Galleries exist within a digital data ecosystem – are YOU tapping into your potential?

Vast quantities of data are generated by galleries on a daily basis including data associated with collections, retail, audiences, memberships, web and social media, traffic, demographics, and tourism.

Begin to unlock the potential of this information at this two-day Digital Data Mixer. Come together to learn from case study presentations by arts and culture data experts and explore practice, techniques, and opportunities through facilitated peer discussions.

“This is an important initiative being undertaken for public art galleries in Canada. It provides a timely opportunity to make the most of the diverse types of data that public art galleries do not typically have the resources to engage with and plan around.” – Simon Fraser University Galleries, Vancouver, BC

By visualizing the data that exists all around us, we will identify strategies that generate new audiences, attract returning visitors, increase retail opportunities, improve operations, manage collections, and increase donor and sponsor reach.

“Investigating new models, experimenting and prototyping new methods, related to how data can inform decision making is crucial to all museums now and into the future.” – Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives, Brampton, ON

Take the first steps towards becoming a leader in data-driven decision making.

Program Registration Fees:
Given the impact of COVID-19 on cultural organizations across Canada, OAAG has decided to move forward with a Pay What You Can model for the Digital Data Mixer. Previously, the fee for this event was set at $150 (OAAG members) and $250 (non-members). The money we receive from our programming allows us to support art galleries in a meaningful way through events, workshops, resources, and other opportunities.
