The Biennale d’art performatif de Rouyn-Noranda, operated by L’écart, is hosting the 2nd edition of the Performance art networking meeting bringing together some twenty organisations from across Canada. Expanding on the first edition organised and hosted in October 2012 by LIVE, Vancouver, BC, the second meeting has invited a few more artist-run centres and collectives to deepen the discussion on networking presenters in order to better support performance art practices and their artists.
Organisations, artist-run centres and biennials invited to attend this meeting include : VIVA! Art Action (Montréal), Neutral Ground (Regina), Open Space (Victoria), Art Nomade (Chicoutimi), Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance (Regina), OFFTA (Montréal), Galerie Saw (Ottawa), 7a*11d (Toronto), LIVE International Performance Art Biennale (Vancouver), Rencontre internationale d’art performance de Québec, VISUALEYEZ Festival (Edmonton), M:ST (Calgary), FADO Performance Art Centre (Toronto), JÈ-ST’ (Moncton), and the artist-run centres and collectives conference (ARCA).
ARCA was proud to have supported the production of a summary of the first meeting by participant Stacey Ho, published in the 2013 fall issue of INTER.
