A new Young Space initiative aimed at sharing, investigating, and discussing all facets of artist-run culture. Part archive and part critical space, the goal is to build a living document which will eventually inhabit its own online platform as a sibling of Young Space, which itself highlights individual artists whose interests often cross over into artist-led initiatives.

This project is in its infancy, and is very much a work in progress. Do you participate in or lead an artist-run initiative such as a collective, studio co-op, gallery space, publication, festival, residency, alternative education program, or other related initiative? Please fill out the form below to get in touch.

Please feel free to send an image or two representing the space/initiative to with the name of your initiative in the subject line. Thank you!
