Repertoire of BC ARCs' PublicationsThe Repertoire of BC ARCs’ Publications indexes print publications produced by BC ARCs since 1967. Since the inception of the first artist-run centre in BC (Intermedia in 1967) the artist-run community has fostered the creation of a large archive of publications, print ephemera, audiovisual recordings as well as organizational and institutional records. This collective archive documents the rich contributions that BC artist-run centres have made (and continue to make) to the province’s cultural ecology.
The searchable feature of the database makes it a great resource for research as it draws connections between material produced by different publishing centres.
Publications indexed in the Repertoire are searchable by: publishing centre, artist, author, curator, media, date and through key words.
The Repertoire is an open resource managed by members of the BC artist-run community. Artist-run or artist-led initiatives across the province can add their publications to the database by creating an organization profile.
