Aine is the Managing Director of Framework, a Toronto-based non-profit organization founded in 2003. Framework's flagship program is Timeraiser, an event that rolls a silent art auction and a volunteer fair into a fun night out on the town. In 17 communities across Canada, people come to Timeraisers to bid their volunteer time, not their money, on artwork that Framework purchases from local emerging artists.
Framework's new programming, Timeraiser+, helps non-profits develop the digital competencies they need to engage donors, volunteers and staff. Aine has worked on Digital and Volunteer Engagement strategies with dozens of Nonprofits.
In a former life, Aine was a lecturer at the University of Toronto where she completed her PhD in 2010. She is the co-editor of Transnationalism Activism Art published in 2012 by U of T Press which explores the relationship between global communities (both economic and cultural), activist energies and cultural products
