As Part 2 of our ongoing blog series on the ecologies of the Artist Run Initiatives, we’re hoping to stimulate further conversation, reflection and debate. We’ve asked all the contributors from Part 1 to create a response to the contributions of their peers. In this week’s instalment, Maria Miranda (Research fellow at the Victorian College of the Arts) leads a conversation with Madé Spencer-Castle (Artist and Curator at Bus Projects) and Anabelle Lacroix (Independent Curator and General Manager at Liquid Architecture) on their responses to the series and to their own experiences. You can read Maria’s first post here.
