Abstract:

  • Through mobile and networked technologies such as the smartphone, digital technologies, environments and experiences are to an increasing extent impacting the production and presentation of everyday aesthetics. Yet, most art productions offered to young audiences are still based on methodologies and expressions that predate the digital shift. Arts for Young Audiences Norway is the Norwegian Ministry of Culture’s agency responsible for bringing and presenting a wide variety of professional art and culture to all school pupils in Norway. In this paper, we address the important question of our children’s digital rights, outlining future and needed policies for bringing digital arts and culture to children and young people, asking: How do we produce and present digital arts for young audiences?
