Learning Communities

One of the strengths of FOMACS’ collaborative approach is its ability to put its partners in touch with new audiences and new users of their media products beyond their own constituencies, a process that can, in itself, revitalise communication activities with a new sense of purposefulness.

FOMACS collaborative approach to interactions, projects, productions, events, and operations has also created ‘learning communities’ fluid groupings that form around specific FOMACS projects and activities. Learning communities provide the opportunity for mediated engagement in which people are able to discuss their impressions of a particular work (film, photography, animation), deepening understanding beyond simple awareness and creating the possibility of mobilising people for social change.
