Mustering the verve and warmth of an East Coast kitchen party, The Association of Artist-Run Centres from the Atlantic hosts the biennial gathering of artist-run centres from across Canada in Charlottetown, in September 2017.

The event brings together artists, administrators, thinkers, curators and the public to consider the flexible, responsive and provisional forms of organization that are increasingly necessary for the sustained evolution of contemporary artist-run culture. Innovative platforms for artistic collaboration will be a key focus.

The event will explore and share ideas around the theme Flotilla, a nautical metaphor that identifies a loose structure—boats and ships of varying dimensions banding together in open water—with a particular resonance in a maritime region characterized by nomadism, temporary location, isolation, and the presence of the sea as a shifting ground and a vehicle for exchange.
