Administrative history

The Centre for Art Tapes (CFAT) is an artist-run, not-for-profit organization that supports the creation of video, audio and interactive digital technologies by providing production facilities, scholarships, in-house residences and mentorships for Halifax-based artists of all levels. The Centre also facilitates the dissemination of media art though exhibitions, presentations and guest curatorial projects, collaborating with groups and organizations in a variety of outreach and community initiatives. Media artists from across Canada and abroad exhibit installations, video, audio and new-media, and participate in colloquia, lectures, forums and master classes. Incorporated in 1978 as the Society for Arts, CFAT has been located in venues throughout Halifax. Current offices are located on Maitland Street in Halifax. The Centre has not had an in-house exhibition space since 1992. Instead, the centre has partnered with local galleries, theatres, and arts and community centres for programming events. The organization receives programming and core operational funding from national, provincial and municipal government sources as well as from corporations, private foundations and individuals. CFAT is currently staffed by a full-time director and a number of paid coordinators, who answer to a voluntary board of directors and oversee member-based committees responsible for programming, scholarships, festivals, workshops, equipment and other functions. Membership costs and benefits vary.

Custodial history

Materials were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in 2011. Prior to that the materials were in the custody of the Centre for Art Tapes. The donation occurred as the Centre for Art Tapes was preparing to move out of the former CBC Radio Building at the intersection of Sackville and Bell Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of records created and collected by the Centre for Art Tapes between 1977 and 2005. Materials reflect the artist-run centre's diverse functions and activities. Records include correspondence, meeting minutes, photographs, scholarship applications, funding applications, posters, programs, CDs, DVDs, audio cassettes, exhibition catalogues, reports, financial statements, public service announcements, news releases, blueprints, agreements, workshop materials and programming information.
