Congratulations to DigiBC's Executive Director Loc Dao for being named (#48) in Vancouver Magazine's 2023 Power 50 List! This is their annual list of the most powerful people in the city that includes politicians, business owners, artists, and activists. This year, they looked at those folks who are shifting the dial in communities all over the city.
48. Loc Dao, Executive Director, DigiBC
An original co-founder of NFB/Interactive and CBC Radio 3, Dao continues to make waves where the arts and technology converge. For the Vancouver International Film Festival this year, Dao co-curated the interactive Signals—an exhibition that focused on the potential of creative technologies for storytelling (from holograms to wearable tech), and was the first of its kind for the fest. He’s put Vancouver on the global radar for technically innovative storytelling globally—and Signals, as he has noted, was the chance to celebrate that innovative work in our own backyard.
