The future of artist-run centres

Facilitator: Clayton Windatt

A round-table discussion exploring the shared futures of artist-run centres. This casual meeting will allow interested and invested parties to share, listen and better understand what artist-run centres are facing across Canada today. Focusing on environments, barriers and community building, Windatt seeks to understand where groups like IMAA, ARCA and CARFAC can better provide support to artists and the spaces that support artist communities the most.
