Digital Arts Resource Centre (DARC) provides training in a varied range of disciplines related to filmmaking and media art while making a dedicated effort to create a pathway to an intersectional education. We aspire to be a platform for creative support and community building through active participation and exchange of knowledge. Our workshops and courses explore the ways in which technical and conceptual frameworks can be used as tools to improve your creative practice. DARC’s educational offerings are open to members and the general public engaged in the creation of non-commercial, independent productions and work.
Workshops are open to Digital Arts Resource Centre members and the general public engaged in the creation of non-commercial, independent productions and work (Non-commercial, independent productions are productions for which the director retains copyright and artistic control, and for which the production is neither being produced for a client nor for the purpose of advertising or promotion).
Digital Arts Resource centre does not offer our workshops to persons employed by any government body or any major corporation if the resources are being used to facilitate benefit for one’s employer or for corporate professional development within one of these kinds of organizations. Our workshops are heavily subsidized as they are available only for independent artists/learners who cannot typically afford to take corporate rate workshops.
You can find non-subsidized workshops from our friends at: SPAO or Henry’s.
Suggestions or specific requests for types of training should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to attend a registered workshop we ask that workshop members provide at least 48 hours notice. A no show penalty of $25 will be applied to workshop members who do not attend their registered workshop (allowances will be made for legitimate emergency situations).
If you like to register for any of our educational offerings available but is currently struggling with your finances due to COVID-19, Digital Arts Resource Centre is offering a Covid-19 impacted payment option for individuals whose income has been affected due to the current pandemic.
