It's been just over 5 months since I started with Rhizome, and I thought it was time to share some ideas and priorities that the Rhizome staff has set.
Below, I lay out several upcoming projects to elicit any thoughts or questions you might have, and just for your information. A couple of them will call on your collaboration and insight; all of them relate to overall improvements of our existing services and online infrastructure.
1) New site design. [....]
2) Advanced Search[....]
3) Metadata Project[....]
These are a few headlines on our organizational horizon. Other upcoming projects include improvements to our Member Directory (more details to come), and our tenth anniversary program in Fall 2006 which we are envisioning as a festival of exhibitions, performances and events that wil be based in New York and also take place in other cities around the U.S. and internationally, and hopefully be a wide-ranging and diverse celebration of new media. We are looking to partner with other organizations for this, so please get in touch with me and Marisa - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you are interested in exploring possibilities for collaboration.
[....] For those, who have contributed during the Campaign, thank you so much. I assure you every contribution is being put towards efforts to build a stronger, more effective Rhizome.
Click-through for the longer letter and details on the many exciting things happening at Rhizome. It's going to be big! And the new site will be awesome!
