Community Consultation Tour

This year, MANO/RAMO received a Tril­lium Foun­da­tion devel­op­ment grant to embark on a province-wide com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion tour. The con­sul­ta­tion will pro­vide an oppor­tu­nity for out­reach and infor­ma­tion shar­ing about how we can work togeth­er to cre­ate mean­ing­ful con­nec­tions and part­ner­ships, as well as raise the pro­file and under­stand­ing of the media arts among the gen­eral pub­lic. We will be con­duct­ing a series of facil­i­tated ses­sions about the sec­tor and the impor­tant role that MANO/RAMO can play. We hope to see you at one of our sched­uled stops or join­ing the con­ver­sa­tion on Face­book at: need to set up group.

The feed­back will be gath­ered to inform the strate­gic plan of the orga­ni­za­tion, inform­ing orga­ni­za­tional goals and activ­i­ties for the next three years.

MANO/RAMO is pleased to be part­ner­ing with Burgess MDR Con­sult­ing, the Tril­lium Foun­da­tion and the Ontario Arts Coun­cil on this project.

MANO/RAMO Community Consultation Tour

MANO/RAMO was born out of the extreme­ly suc­cess­ful admin­is­tra­tion and exe­cu­tion of the IMAA nation­al ON.Fire con­fer­ence, host­ed in Toron­to in 2010. Fol­low­ing the over­whelm­ingly enthu­si­as­tic response from con­fer­ence par­tic­i­pants and fun­ders, MANO/RAMO was able to lever­age the momen­tum and suc­cess of the con­fer­ence and trans­late it into annu­al oper­at­ing fund­ing and ongo­ing orga­ni­za­tional activ­i­ties.

As part of its man­date, MANO/RAMO will host a bi-annu­al con­fer­ence in rotat­ing loca­tions across the province. The next con­fer­ence is ten­ta­tively sched­uled for Jan­u­ary, 2013, in Ottawa, in part­ner­ship with SAW Video. Stay tuned for more infor­ma­tion.
