The Pacific Association of Artist-Run Centres’ project Origin Stories is an important on-line publication documenting Vancouver’s Artist-Run Centres. Posted on the ArcPost: Artists and Institution website, Origin Stories will identify each member centre and include significant archival images, original mandates, history of founding artists and other materials pertinent to the origins of Vancouver’s artist-run activity. Critical writing, online and print resources will also be included. This online site will celebrate the history of artist-run movements in the city and provide a resource for tracking the influence of these centres on Vancouver’s contemporary art practices. www.arcpost.ca
