Canadian artist-run centres (ARC or ARCs) are galleries and art spaces developed by artists in Canada since the 1960s. Emerging in the early 1970s, when Australian artists were forming the first alternative galleries, Canadian ARCs were responding and advocating for the artist's right to choose how they make and present their work.
Along with John White and Tony McGillick, Harald Noritis was one of the founders of Sydney's Central Street Gallery.
