About AAARC & LTTT
Founded in 2005, the Alberta Association of Artist-Run Centres (AAARC) supports advocacy, networking, and organizational growth for artist-run visual arts organizations across Alberta. As a syndicate of ten not-for-profit artist-run centres, each with their own mandate, AAARC’s activities continue to strengthen community and collaboration in contemporary art by facilitating close communication between organizations. Since the early 1970s, and continuing today, Alberta’s artist-run centres have fostered artistic ingenuity, creative production, and dynamic public engagement with art—supporting a wide range of artists and contemporary art practices.
AAARC is part of the regional caucus of ARCA, an organization that represents and advocates for Canadian artist-run organizations on national and international levels, and in August 2021 AAARC will partner with ARCA to host Lands to Travel Through, an artist-run gathering in Mohkinstsis/Calgary.
