This study identifies the various roles and mandates of artist–run centres (ARCs) as distinct from other visual arts organizations in such areas as public engagement, community arts, critical writing, multidisciplinary activity, cultural diversity and Aboriginal engagement. The Canada Council commissioned external consultants to conduct this study in December 2010 to inform its understanding of the place of ARCs in the overall visual arts ecology.
