Concordia Launches Canadian Women Artists' Database - The first of its kind in the country



    MONTREAL, Sept. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Concordia University is proud to
announce the launch of the Canadian Women's Artists History Initiative. This
initiative establishes, for the first time in Canada, a centralized, publicly
accessible, online database of Canadian women artists. Other projects from the
Initiative include a documentation centre and fostering of scholarship on the
subject.
    This kind of archive has long existed in countries such as the
United States, Australia and the U.K., but never before in Canada. 200 entries
have already been completed in the online database. Each entry provides
biographical information, major sources for research materials and a detailed
bibliography of texts and writings about the artist.
    The initiative will officially launch during the inaugural conference of
the Canadian Women Artists History Initiative. Connections will take place
from October 2 -4, 2008 in the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts
Integrated Complex (1515 Ste. Catherine St. West).
    For more information on the Database or the conference, please visit
