Welcome to the Digital Art Courses in Higher Education Institutions-Digarted project
Digarted aspires to:
Background of the Digarted project
Art educators needs to be able to keep up with today’s digital transformation that affects all sectors of the economy, including creative and artistic jobs. Their personal digital competencies have to be elevated and their skills in creating innovative digital curricula need to be cultivated. Art students need to be exposed to the concept of digital art and to the possibilities and outlets that this field can offer them in the future. The students represent the next generation of the workforce and they must be able to respond to change brought by digitization. Art higher education institutions need to be able to offer innovative, trans-disciplinary, and contemporary programmes to their students. All institutions have to be aligned and able to keep up with the broader societal needs and the needs of the labor market. By incorporating digital art courses in their curricula, art institutions can increase their visibility, reinforce their reputation, and attract talent and funding.
