The Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference (ARCA) is proud to announce the network’s first online directory is now LIVE! The Directory is an online database of artist-run centres and collectives (ARCs) from across Canada. Covering the breadth of the artist-run network and its distribution across the nine artist-run associations that make up the ARCA membership, the Directory allows art professionals to locate centres using a variety of filters including location, type, discipline, and submission deadlines. »Read more
L'ARCA is a micropublication produced to accompany ARCA’s Saturday November 14, 2015 plenary*, from12:00 – 2:00, Layton Room, Ryerson Student Centre (Toronto), as part of the conference Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion. Consisting in the edited print incarnation of twelve bilingual briefs disseminated weekly from August 25 to November 10, 2015, produced to provide a holistic sense of ARCA’s activities as they are connected to current cultural events.
Far from being exhaustive, the present Sélection of Canadian artist-run centres’ publications—many bilingual in French and English, representing mostly the Québec and French Canadian scenes in Canada—presents a cross-section of titles published from 1991 to today. This initiative stems from a desire to revive or re-circulate key texts and documents produced by the network and thereby to shed light on ARCs’ contributions to the development of critical discourses about contemporary art in Canada.
What riding is your centre located in? Have you started thinking about our new government's promise to double the budget of the Canada Council for the Arts? The following resource is adapted from the Canadian Arts Coalition's website. Arca encourages members of the artist-run community to adapt and personalize the material produced for the 2014 Arts Day on the Hill campaign, and adapted by ARCA, to engage with local politicians. The topic for the 2014 pre-budget committee hearings was “maximizing the number and types of jobs for Canadians.” This topic remains a top priority so take the opportunity to highlight recent statistics on employment in the artist-run network, and, to reiterate the Canadian Arts Coalitions recommendations for the federal budget 2016. Once again, Arca thanks the Coalition's volunteers for developing and sharing this material.
