Guides on HR, Governance, Equity and Conflict Resolution

Pre­vi­ous con­sul­ta­tions have demon­strat­ed the need for the media arts sec­tor to devel­op a set of (unique­ly tai­lored to the orga­ni­za­tion­al struc­tures of artist-run media orga­ni­za­tions) best prac­tices, poli­cies and doc­u­ment tem­plates on human resources, gov­er­nance,  equi­ty, and con­flict resolution.

With the sup­port from the Cana­da Coun­cil for the Arts (Lead­er­ship for Change pro­gram), MANO’s mem­bers worked with con­sul­tants Giselle Bas­an­ta, Charles C. Smith and Sheila Wilmot in order to devel­op such poli­cies and pro­ce­dures dur­ing the sum­mer and fall of 2015. After research, con­sul­ta­tions with work groups, the draft­ing of poli­cies and a work­shop on Medi­a­tion and Con­flict Res­o­lu­tion, the con­clu­sion of the project took place in Jan­u­ary 2016 with the pre­sen­ta­tion of the project’s poli­cies and pro­ce­dures to MANO’s mem­ber­ship at the Map­ping Medias symposium.
