Workshop Policies

Our online workshops are pay what you can by donation. Fees for workshops can be waived if access to funds is a barrier to participation, for more information please email

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.
