Building Digital Capacity Roadshows

Are you a cultural leader in Scotland who wants to build digital capacity in your organisation?

These events offer an opportunity to receive 1:1 speed mentoring on your digital challenges and ideas and connect with digital specialists and fellow leaders who are thinking strategically about digital.

The sessions will be tailored to respond to your specific digital challenges and questions. During these events, The Space team will also share top tips and key learning from a range of digital case studies across arts organisations and museums.
