MANO is visiting Mississauga on Tuesday, August 14th, 2018 and is inviting artists and arts workers in the region to join us that day in order to discuss either publicly, privately, or both, the current climate for media arts practitioners in the region. In attendance will be Ben Donoghue, Director of MANO and Adriana Rosselli, Membership & Communications Coordinator.
MANO has been an important ally and advocate for arts organizations and individual artists in the Province for over ten years. While our focus is media and visual arts, we are very much invested in strengthening the sector more broadly and ensuring the sustainability of the arts ecology in Ontario.
MANO will be hosting a public roundtable discussion at 7PM and will be available during the afternoon to meet individually with artists or organizations/collectives from 1–6pm on a first come first served basis. The roundtable offers a space for people to share their thoughts on the current circumstances of the sector and ways in which MANO can support those working in media arts in the region. The private meetings offer an open avenue to discuss more specific things pertaining to your work from managing a project and funding opportunities to how to organize collectively or incorporate as a not-for profit.
When? Tuesday, August 14 between 1pm and 6pm
Where? SAIB,1352 Lakeshore Rd E, Mississauga

The re:assemblage collective is committed to championing underrepresented voices and perspectives through public film/video screenings. We are itinerant and intentional. We are “reassembling” assumptions about artist film/video practices: who is shown and the forms of works championed. We are inspired by Trinh Minh-ha’s film ‘Reassemblage’. The re:assemblage collective is Christina Battle and Scott Miller Berry based in Southern Ontario.
THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED AT A LATER DATE. PLEASE CONTACT MANO FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.

When applying for an OTF Grow Grant, applicants are required to submit evidence of the effectiveness of the approach they are planning to grow or replicate. Many organizations struggle with this. This workshop, designed especially for initiatives that support arts, culture and heritage, will provide:
-An overview of evidence of effectiveness vs evidence of need
-An overview of the range of evidence that can be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of your initiative’s approach
-Examples of how organizations have successfully used evidence to support their applications
-Tips on how to generate your own evidence and where to search for external arts, culture and heritage evidence
The presentation takes about an hour so the added 30 minutes should give us lots of time for good discussion.
YYZ supports critical and experimental artistic practices through exhibitions, publishing, educational programs, and the commissioning of new works. By prioritizing the agency of artists, YYZ provides a unique platform for building communities and advancement of culture.
