The Field – a first ARCA commission

 

The Field is ARCA’s first venture into commissioning works that aim to provide perspective on the role of Canadian artist-run centres. This video by emerging filmmaker Heidi Phillips focuses on one install at RAW: Gallery of Architecture & Design in Winnipeg. The environment created by artist-architect Frank Fantauzzi, associate professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Manitoba, Charlie O’Geen and a team of collaborators, portrays how, more and more, artist-run centres support an ever-expanding artistic field, across disciplines, and across communities.

Study : Employment standards within our network

Employment standards
 

In the fall of 2009, in collaboration with our colleagues from the Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA), ARCA conducted a survey of working conditions in the artist-run centres’ network. The results of this study, the first of its kind on the national level, were intended to help workers of artist-run centres better communicate their needs »»

Study: Artist’s Fees

 

This survey was conducted by ARCA in the fall of 2007 at the request of CARFAC in order to establish the importance of artist fees paid by artist-run centres in relation to their overall budget.
