We might say that everything has a lifespan and artist-run centres are no different. Some end before their time, others transform and renew themselves through successive generations, and some remain on life support far longer than is dignified, beholden to the palliative care of a burnt out “new generation” of cultural workers tasked with working out their present and future while struggling to honour their past.

What are Promiscuous Infrastructures? They are strategies of resistance in a hostile political and economic environment that threatens creativity.

Promiscuous Infrastructures are affectionate, trustworthy, anticapitalist, antiauthoritarian, experimental and fun.
