Since 2011 we’ve been working to bring documentation of our past work into the public domain through our website. On this site you can access an extensive archive of video and audio recordings of experimental music, art work, discussions, films and performances.
If you, or an organisation you are a part of would like to enquire about our archive, or propose a conversation around particular documents, artists or themes, please contact us at email@example.com
If you wish to know more generally, to become involved in some of Arika’s activities, or to offer feedback, please contact us at the above email address.
At last count we’ve organised over 1,200 events attended by at least 142,000 people and featuring about 1,350 artists, filmmakers, performers, dancers, musicians, philosophers, activists, community organisers, academics, and writers.
Our projects have been delivered in collaboration with many partners and venues such as concert halls, community spaces, major international museums and biennials, cinemas, art centres, roadsides, an IMAX, stone circles, pubs, under bridges, and once in an underground fuel storage tank.
Partner institutions have included Tramway (Glasgow), Dundee Contemporary Arts (Dundee), The Arches (Glasgow), The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), MoMA PS1 (New York), Performance Space New York, CCA (Glasgow), Sage Gateshead, Institute of Contemporary Arts (London), British Film Institute, Never Come Ashore, Art Angel (Dundee) and PAN.
Events we’ve programmed in the past include the festivals INSTAL, Kill Your Timid Notion and Music Lover’s Field Companion, and the Shadowed Spaces and Resonant Spaces tours. We’ve worked on long term community projects with Ultra-red, SWARM (Sex Worker Advocacy and Resistance Movement), Arbert Santana Ballroom Freedom and Free School and presented a week long programme of events as part of the 2012 Whitney Biennial entitled A Survey is a Process of Listening.
