Tamarack: An Institute for Community Engagement

July 13, 2012 in Community, Policy, Resources

Tamarackcci.ca is a learning community of members, from diverse sectors, who share a common interest in collaborative leadership, community engagement and change. It is made up of individuals who are united in our desire to change the world: one community at time…

Together, as we advance this field, we are building a body of practice that will strengthen our individual skills while making the work of communities collaborating easier and more effective for the entire field. As practitioners, our experience has taught us that, in this work, the journey is as important as the destination. And, we believe that “The future will belong to the integrators, the networkers and the collaborators. Chance favours the connected mind.”

…Conversation is at the heart of a strong community. As community facilitators, we have created this space to host an ongoing dialogue about community engagement, collaborative leadership and change. Through the articles, audio seminars and podcasts, and learning events you will find the latest resources in this field but, this is only the beginning. We hope that you, too, will engage, learn, find, and connect with us and others in this online space. By creating and building your profile in Connect, and contributing to the conversations found on this online space, you are helping to build a dynamic learning community. The success of this space requires your energy, creativity, so that, together, we can cultivate a mutually-supportive community of practice.

In addition to the Communities Collaborating facilitators, this site will introduce you to thought-leaders who contribute and are referenced regularly within this online space. Their blogs, comments, profiles, and seminars are meant to further stimulate your learning. Your ideas and contributions to this space are just as important, and are essential to generating the rich diversity of perspectives needed to distill experiences into wisdom.” Source: Tamarack

On The Media

While maintaining the civility and fairness that are the hallmarks of public radio, OTM tackles sticky issues with a frankness and transparency that has built trust with listeners and led to more than a tripling of its audience in five years.

Since OTM was re-launched in 2001, it has been one of NPR’s fastest growing programs, heard on more than 300 public radio stations. It has won Edward R. Murrow Awards for feature reporting and investigative reporting, the National Press Club’s Arthur Rowse Award for Press Criticism and a Peabody Award for its body of work.” Source: On The Media

 

“On the Media is our effort to function as the outsider’s insider. In other words, all of us who work on the show are journalists. But I guess there is something in our collective natures that makes us feel somewhat outside the process, despite the years we may have spent within it.

So we hope that we can demystify the process…

It’s always interesting to cover your own business, but the beat lacks something that is really, really important for reporters like me who like narrative. There’s no story. What you are reporting on are trends, policies, perceptions, and studies. Where are the people? Where is the blood? What are the stakes?

Well there ARE stakes and that is something that we try to focus on a lot, what the stakes are – the continued health of an honest and independent press.” Source: Gothamist
