Artist-Run-Initiatives (ARI) emerge in response to a need within arts communities and embrace a Do-It-Yourself aesthetic. In this webinar, Petalia Humphrey’s will draw upon her experience establishing and managing Studio 26, a community-based exhibition and discussion group based on the Sunshine Coast. Using Studio 26 as a case study, she will identify unique aspects of starting an ARI in a regional centre and offer practical tips for managing and promoting artistic outcomes and activities.

This webinar will cover:

  • Funding for regional Artist-Run-Initiatives.
