Beginning in 2019 and funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, Arts BC developed a  multi-year initiative to digital literacy that endeavors to support cultural workers and artists to gain the necessary skills to navigate and flourish in the digital world. The project was divided into two stages. First, the DigistARTS phase focused on sector research and consultation to better understand the state of the industry and areas the project is seeking to address – the digital landscape in the arts and culture sector. The second phase, THRIVE Digital, which they are currently undertaking, transforms the findings from phase one into a series of practical knowledge and skills building activities for the community such as workshops, virtual residencies, and learning groups.

As part of their current phase, THRIVE Digital, Arts BC is offering Digital Course Licenses to Arts BC members. Previously, as part of their hands-on learning and training, they offered a Tech Helpdesk and Peer to Peer Mentoring Network.

On the topic of digital literacy, their website states: 

"For us, building digital literacy means getting comfortable with digital. More importantly, it’s about thinking strategically about the role digital tools play in our everyday work and creativity. In addition to how we respond to digital trends that drive key areas in our work such as audience engagement, marketing communications, content development, collaboration and fundraising." —https://artsbc.org/digital-literacy/#!event-list, Accessed 31 January 2024.
