Acknowledgements

This project has been generously supported in a number of ways.

First and foremost, thank you to Konstfack University College of Art, Craft and Design for welcoming my proposal to conduct research in Stockholm and other locations in 2011. Without Konstfack, it’s unlikely this e-resource would have ever materialized. More specifically, I would like to acknowledge Renee Padt of CuratorLab, as well as my CuratorLab colleagues, for taking interest in my project and providing valuable feedback at the earliest stages of its development. I am also grateful to Konstfack for facilitating contact with my mentor, esteemed researcher and writer, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt. I’m eternally grateful for her support by way of interest in and thorough criticism of my ideas, enthusiastic recommendation of resources, and always inspiring conversation. Thank you!

Of equal importance, I’d like to thank Not An Alternative, PLATFORM London, and Malmö Fria Kvinnouniversitet for accepting my request to interview them as part of case studies on their work resisting social, economic, and environmental injustice. I am truly grateful for their willingness to speak with me candidly about the circumstances surrounding, influencing, and motivating their strategies and practice.

In Canada, I’d like to acknowledge the financial contributions of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Arts Council, and the Winnipeg Arts Council for granting funds that supported the third and final stage of research related travel for this project in 2011. Thank you so much!

I would also like to thank Loughborough University School of the Arts, University of Leeds, and S1 Artspace for welcoming an early presentation of this research in Sheffield (May 2011). In Winnipeg, aceartinc. and Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art in Winnipeg also expressed interest in my research by welcoming presentations in June and December 2011, respectively. Thank you for helping me share this work.

The design concept for the forthcoming .pdf version of this resource was created by Housefires Design & Illustration (Winnipeg); this WordPress template incorporates elements from it where possible.
