An Artist Run Initiative (ARI) is a collective or space run by artists to present their own and other artist’s work.
ARIs might approximate a traditional art gallery or performance space in appearance or function, or may take a markedly different approach, limited only by the artist’s understanding of the term. There are over 100 active ARIs across Australia, working in a number of models including commercial, site specific and pop up, and acting as incubators for the next generation of arts practitioners.
Resource information for ARIs is spread across a number of locations. This project intends to generate an ARI portal, in the form of a web presence, which links all available ARI resources and networks together.
The Australia Council’s Market Development division is seeking creative, sustainable and inventive Expressions of Interest from organisations, individuals, partnerships or groups, outlining how they would:
- develop, design and deliver ARI Web – An Online Resource Guide for Artist Run Initiatives.
The deadline for receipt of proposals is 2pm (EST) 28 April, 2010
