Arts Front version 2
Software with Soul
V2.Artsfront.com is a testing and development site for a new Arts Front digital platform, set to be launched nationally in mid-2020.
Arts Front is aiming high and dreaming big. We are reimagining how we use technology in our creative practice and day-to-day work. It is part of a radical repositioning of the arts aimed at sparking a new era of consciousness, connectedness and collective action.
We’ve been thinking:
Applying skills and knowledge gained through the development of PlaceStories and The Platform, the new Arts Front Platform is being built from scratch using the latest technologies to meet the creative, communications, events organising, collaborative, documentation, media management, profiling, data gathering, mapping and storytelling needs of the whole arts sector.
The new Arts Front system is being built to embody and actively promote key Arts Front values and priorities:
For example, a new function currently being trialled invites people organising an event to acknowledge and connect with the traditional owners of the place their event is being held. Similarly, work is underway to embed practical support for artists to reduce the carbon footprint of their events and to make them more accessible. These are early examples of the Arts Front values being made manifest through the platform.
