OptoMedia is more than just development. Our creativity and expertise manifests itself through education as well. In this case, Tapestry Foundation approached OptoMedia to provide training to its staff, in order to help manage its Drupal based site. Opto also provides much needed consultation and direction to Tapestry, to help move the organization forward with its on going site needs, as well as the deployment of upcoming campaigns and new media applications. OptoMedia consolidates the expertise of several seasoned new media instructors, each with years of experience in new media instruction at institutions of higher education.

The Tapestry Foundation organization is the amalgamation of three organizations with a long history of supporting compassionate health care in Vancouver – St. Vincent’s, Holy Family and Mount Saint Joseph Hospital Foundations.
