Artist-run initiatives as liminal incubatory arts practice

McDonald, Janet Alison (2015) Artist-run initiatives as liminal incubatory arts practice. In: Creative communities: regional inclusion & the arts. Intellect Books, Bristol, United Kingdom, pp. 207-218. ISBN 978-1-78320-512-7


This chapter investigates the temporary nature of Artist-Run Initiatives (ARIs) in a regional centre (Toowoomba, Queensland). It is asserted that these kinds of creative practices are vital for regional areas as they are models of connectivity, collaboration and transformation. At the same time, ARIs can be liminal in that they are 'in-between' being community and commercial ventures which means they may not 'fit' within regulatory grant practices or other funding possibilities.
