Archive/Counter-Archive: Activating Canada’s Moving Images Heritage is a six-year SSHRC Partnership Grant dedicated to researching and remediating audiovisual archives created by women, Indigenous Peoples, the LGBTQ2+ community and immigrant communities. Political, resistant, and community-based, counter-archives disrupt conventional narratives and enrich our histories. The project’s research is committed to finding solutions for safekeeping Canada’s audiovisual heritage. We seek to research and remediate audiovisual heritage that is most vulnerable to disappearance and inaccessibility, fostering a community and network dedicated to creating best practices and cultural policies.

PUBLIC is an interdisciplinary journal with a core focus on visual art. It strives to be an accessible, smart and beautiful journal about art with the timeliness and visual interest of a magazine, but the longevity of a book. PUBLIC maintains an enduring and esteemed profile in the periodicals market with its demonstrated commitment to publishing works, both written and visual, that are innovative and challenging, forward-thinking and critical, and engage both internationally and locally inflected perspectives. The journal devotes each 180+ – page, perfect-bound semi-color issue to a contemporary problem or theme and features content that combines critical writing, rich illustration throughout, and artist portfolios. PUBLIC stands apart from other publications by being conceived as a hybrid intellectual and creative forum that investigates how theoretical and critical issues intersect with art and public culture.
