MANO/RAMO Partners to Create Best Practices Tool Kits for the Media, Visual and Craft-Based Arts Sectors

Strength­en­ing the Sec­tor: Resources and Best Prac­tices for the Visual, Media and Craft-Based Arts Sec­tor is a three-year project focused on research­ing and devel­op­ing resources and tools for the visual, media and craft-based arts sec­tors. The ulti­mate goal of the project is estab­lish­ing a set of best prac­tices to advance indus­try stan­dards through a con­sul­ta­tive, con­sen­sus build­ing process. The result­ing eth­i­cal and prac­ti­cal pro­fes­sional stan­dards and best prac­tices devel­oped will pro­vide guid­ance in areas where reg­u­la­tion and agree­ments cur­rently do not exist.

The project is being led by an alliance of CARFAC Ontario, Ontario Crafts Coun­cil, Artist-Run Cen­tres and Col­lec­tives of Ontario (ARCCO), Media Arts Net­work of Ontario (MANO) and the Abo­rig­i­nal Cura­to­r­ial Col­lec­tive (ACC).

A com­mu­nity engage­ment process involv­ing regional forums and a com­mu­nity sur­vey will pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for par­tic­i­pa­tion and input to the project. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on dates and loca­tions for the forums will be avail­able shortly.

Please par­tic­i­pate to help shape this impor­tant ini­tia­tive to advance the visual, media and craft-based sector.
