Ontario Association of Art Galleries: Digital Data Mixer

Professional Development & Reception

Friday, April 24, 2020

Bata Shoe Museum
327 Bloor Street West, Toronto


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 one-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.
