Produced by the Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference / (ARCA), in partnership with the Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA), What Is an Artist-Run Centre? is a didactic video in seven parts created to assist managers in small, not-for-profit arts organizations as they seek new revenue streams from private and corporate sources. The video, written and directed by former ARCA director Anne Bertrand, aims to provide non-initiated publics, donors, sponsors, and students with an introduction to artist-run culture: its origins, purpose, operations, users, and services.
