The context of DigitACT is the pandemic which has highly affected performing arts. Young actors and technicians who are about to enter the respective job market or have just entered it, are facing huge difficulties in adapting to these new circumstances for which they were probably not sufficiently trained in their drama schools and faculties. In many countries, lots of plays were streamed through the web in very low quality, thus, degrading the image of the artistic product and the artists themselves. On the other hand, young actors, who are now trying to build their professional profile, meaning their web presence (professional platforms, digital portfolios, digital networking spaces, digital CVs, audition videos, self-presentation during online interviews/auditions) will have to upgrade their digital skills as a manner of boosting their personal digital marketing skills, thus, enhancing their career development. DigitACT project addresses the above-mentioned needs helping young actors and young technicians to be better included in the performing arts job market which is under a dramatic transformation.
