ARI Discussion: Collaborations and Concerns
All directors and representatives of Sydney ARIs are welcome to participate. Guest speaker Maria Miranda, DECRA Research fellow at Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.
The purpose of this project is to foster closer ties between the many and varied artist-run-initiatives (ARIs) that play such an important role in the Sydney and wider art world. ARIs play this role by supporting artists’ communities, as well as the experimental and new work for which artists’ communities provide such an appreciative and well-informed audience. This project hopes that by strengthening these ties we can together become a stronger and louder voice, and build appeal among art-interested audiences everywhere. We hope that this will become an annual event and extend more widely across ARIs, and involve ARIs outside of Sydney as well.
Participating ARIs include: Ultimo Project, TAP, SNO, SafARI, NORTH, MOP, MAP, CULTURE AT WORK, BIG FAG PRESS, Articulate project space.
