Building a knowledge graph to empower the Canadian arts sector

This project, supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and Canadian Heritage, invites all Canadian arts organizations to participate. By generating a knowledge graph of usable and connected metadata that is open and accessible, the arts sector is building an equitable and fair digital environment.


A sector-owned knowledge graph enables Canadian arts organizations to:

  • Gain knowledge, agency and control of their metadata.
  • Access valuable metadata that enables them to generate and capitalize on new opportunities.
  • Improve discoverability and enhance search results by publishing structured data on arts organizations’ websites.
  • Increase data circulation to third-party sites with accurate, machine readable and easy-to-share arts data.
