The Artist-Run Centers and Collectives Conference/La Conférence descollectifs et des Centers d’artistes autogérés (ARCA) currently represents over 180+ artist-run centers (ARC) across Canada. This includes but is not limited to groups and collectives working in visual and media arts, performance art, publishing, contemporary craft and architecture. ARCs are defined through their community and actions and have been built over multiple generations of arts advocacy since the 1960s. ARCs are key arts and culture providers, each providing unique and significant artistic benefits to their communities. Each ARC has its own mandate and cultural identity, responding to their community’s needs through programming and artistic actions.
As our primary public engagement activity, ARCA co-produces biennial conferences that bring together hundreds of arts representatives from across Canada and beyond. Since 2005, ARCA’s work has been to connect the arts across Canada, supporting our members in navigating organizational structures, providing professional development, and networking opportunities, as well as raising awareness of the value of artist-run centers and the arts. ARCA is the key arts service organization that bridges communication between these 180+ organizations as the provider of sectoral growth across great distances. As the arts emerge from the COVID19 pandemic ARCA assesses collective needs, provides training, and reimagines ongoing operations.
The Programming Coordinator will plan, support, implement, and oversee a variety of duties ensuring that ARCA’s programming remains active, relevant, and engaging to artist-run centres. Working with and reporting to the Executive Director, this position works with ARCA as a team to manage organizational outreach, programmed arts activations, and many aspects of ongoing operations. With the ARCA conference as the primary action to plan and implement through partnerships and collaboration, the Programming Coordinator is responsible for, but not limited to the following responsibilities:
