Like many, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Dollard Centre for the Arts was forced to adapt quickly to save its programming activities. To meet the needs of DDO residents, it developed an innovative approach to online classes that distinguished it from other schools. Exploiting up to five Zoom accounts simultaneously, it has been able to offer students up to four in-class camera views, creating a dynamic online environment. It uses professional sound and lighting equipment, and offers ongoing technical support to willing students during and outside of class time.

As its new Managing Director, Patrick Charron explains: “We wanted to come out of this sudden Research & Development period with the means to broaden our outreach both during the pandemic and after. Even when residents are able to return to our studios, these new capabilities will enable us to continue to offer quality arts educational programming to individuals at home who might be struggling with sickness, physical disabilities, caring for others, and those wishing to connect from outside the immediate geographical area (family and friends from abroad, vacation homes, etc).
