In the current changing economic climate it is important for organisations in the third sector, social enterprise and the creative industries to be equipped with the knowledge needed to ensure they are able to keep up with fast moving digital development, whether using new technology to support promotion, income generation, protect intellectual property rights or to offer something new and innovative to clients. We know it’s difficult for businesses faced with the constant development of digital technologies and the decrease in cultural grant and government funding to prioritise direction and stay ahead of the game. So, Bolton Council Arts Development service are holding a series of enabling events designed to equip artists, the third sector and creative industries with the knowledge to help inform decision-making and development in the future.  ‘Enabling: Digital Development in the Arts’ can help your business get a grip on digital technology. The day will cover:• Online income generation• Digital resources for promotion• Increasing community participation online• Open data and data visualisation (data narrative)• New technologies in arts and culture • Social networks, open source software• Intellectual property rights• Community Media
