The Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec

The RCAAQ is a national advocacy organization whose mandate is to support, bring together, represent, and promote Quebec's artist-run centres.

The RCAAQ supports research activities related to artistic experimentation, encourages artists to run their own centres, offers a continuing education program for both cultural workers and professional artists, and supports the dissemination of art within society.

It works on behalf of its members to ensure their proper exposure and to support the network of Quebec and Canadian associations working to promote the visual arts. Through collaborations with representatives of other disciplines and communities, the RCAAQ helps define and develop  Quebec and Canadian artistic and cultural challenges. It also contributes to the improvement of the socio-economic conditions of artists and artist-run centre workers. Since its creation in 1986, the RCAAQ has become a major spokesperson for the visual arts in Quebec.

The RCAAQ is the meeting point of a network of nearly seventy artist-run centres located all over the province of Quebec.


Board of Directors

The RCAAQ is administered by a 9 person board of directors. Three members of this board represent the Montreal region, two represent the Quebec City region and the remaining four the other Quebec regions. The board of directors is elected yearly.
