New Digital Arts Forum website launched

The new Digital Arts Forum website has been launched at

The Digital Arts Forum is an Arts Council funded regional arts portal to promote the East Midlands’ digital arts. The DAF is primarily aimed at artists and arts workers in the East Midlands region of the UK, who are working with film, video, animation, moving image, net art, photography and new media; although it welcomes input from the arts world further a field.

The redesigned website is simpler and reduced to easy to navigate core functions in the News, Gallery, Calender, Profile and Directory sections.

Please register to the website as an individual and/or organisation. Registered users of the website will be added to the Profile section as individuals or to the Directory section as organisations. It is important to choose a Username that clearly states whether you register as a person or organisation and you will be displayed on the website by this name.

Profile and Directory should work as a contact resource database for the East Midlands including all important arts players of the region.

Please submit news about all your upcoming projects and events to the website to keep it up to date as a regional arts platform.

News can be submitted by registered and logged in users through the Submit News Story function or by emailing to Anna Petry (details below) and then will be posted on the site.

The calender shows single events coming up. People can submit their events to it by emailing title, date and time, location and a short description.

The website’s Gallery is a platform to showcase samples of art work from all artists from or working in the region. It is possible to display a selection of five pieces each to give an overview of the work and introduce to the artists. Links or contact addresses will give the opportunity to find our more.

The DAF Gallery can show stills or video material, which will be hosted through Youtube.
