Repertoire of BC ARC Publications

Repertoire of BC ARC Publications is an online database created to catalogue publications produced by BC artist-run-centres. This database has been developed as a centralized online research and documentation resource.  The goal of this resource is to create more visibility for past and current ARC activities via their published material, document the publishing activities of ARCs in the province since 1967, catalogue publications to facilitate research initiatives, identify physical repositories where publications can be accessed or purchased, and contribute to ongoing efforts to document ARC histories.

The database is currently being populated and is now available to the public. S.V.E.S. publications are in progress. Publications by Women In Focus and Metro Metro held at VIVO at the Crista Dahl Media Library and Archive can also be searched on the site.
