CARFAC Ontario is the association of professional visual and media artists. Founded in 1968, CARFAC (Canadian Artists' Representation/le Front des artistes canadiens) has worked for 40 years on the legal and economic issues facing visual artists. We believe that artists, like professionals in other fields, should be paid for their work and share equitably in profits from their art practice. The work of CARFAC Ontario is to develop policies, publications and services that assist artists, galleries, curators, art patrons, and other stakeholders in creating an economic climate that benefits all visual artists.
Strengthening the Sector: Resources and Best Practices for the Visual, Media and Craft-Based Arts Sector is a three-year project focused on researching and developing a range of resources and tools to support the visual, media and craft-based arts sectors.
Gallery and Organization Archives Best Practices Toolkit - Survey
CARFAC Ontario is conducting a survey designed to assess the state of organizational archives in artist-run centres, art galleries, and museums. The data collected here is being generated in conjunction with the “Gallery Archives: Best Practices for the Visual, Media and Craft-Based Sector” toolkit, which includes a donation agreement template, a CARFAC code of practice for archival activities, and a reference document on basic preservation practices.
CARFAC Ontario is working with a network of artists and organizations to develop a series of four toolkits as part of CARFAC Ontario’s Strengthening the Sector project. The resulting tools will be available, free, on our website.
Your candid and critical answers will help illustrate and contextualize the status of archives within Ontario's craft, visual, and media arts sector. All answers will remain anonymous.
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. You may withdraw your participation at any time by simply exiting your browser or closing the survey site. The survey will close June 24th at 11:59pm EST.
Individual artists can take the survey if they represent artist-run centres, art galleries, and museums (but not regarding their own artistic archives).
Please help spread the word on social media and forward to any institutions which can contribute to our research.
