The Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference (ARCA) is proud to announce the launch of the network’s first online directory.
The Directory is an online database of artist-run centres and collectives (ARCCs) from across Canada. Covering the breadth of the artist-run network and its distribution across the nine artist-run associations that make up ARCA, the Directory allows art professionals to locate centres using a variety of filters including location, type, discipline, and submission deadlines; A brief abstract, prepared by the centres and available in both official languages, provides an overview of the centres’ mission and culture. Searchable and frequently updated, the directory provides basic information, a location map, and links to individual websites and social media for easy access to each centre’s full scope of activities.
For the directory to be a useful resource, centres are encouraged to help keep the information current by updating submission deadlines regularly. Updates and corrections can be sent to info(at)arccc-cccaa(dot)org, quoting The Directory in the subjet line.
ARCA wishes to thank all participating centres for their collaboration in making this resource a reality and for helping keep it current.
ARCA acknowledges the financial support of Canadian Heritage for translation.
