Concert virtuel et démocratisation culturelle : enjeux et mutations

Saturday, June 3rd
Nouvelles pratiques institutionnelles (2ème partie)
Ariane Couture
10h45 – 11h45

For several years, Quebec has been aiming to accelerate the deployment of a true digital culture where technology is seen as a means of fostering democracy and ensuring a greater deployment of culture in the public space. Between 2020 and 2022—periods when the population was confined and theatres were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic—the government strongly encouraged artists and organizations in the music scene to produce concerts accessible online. This exceptional global situation has brought an acceleration in the digital transformation. However, with the use of digital technology comes the question of creation. That is why it becomes necessary to reflect and examine the virtual concert in terms of cultural democratization.
