AIM (Artists’ Initiatives’ Meetings) is an international artist-run network of artist-run initiatives. AIM was established in 2010 in order to create a common platform to share experiences and knowledge and to increase visibility of the artist-run art scene. AIM’s programme consists of meetings, conferences and exhibitions, and stimulates mobility and new collaborations for artists and professionals in the art field.
We have identified the need for a common platform and begun building a world-wide network of artists’ initiatives. There is a great need to increase visibility and accessibility for the organisations themselves, for artists and professionals in the art field, and for a broader public.

Previous conferences:
Berlin in October 2010, Stockholm in February 2011, Copenhagen in September 2011, Binissalem in February 2012, Stockholm in February 2013, Helsinki in September 2013, Stockholm in February 2014, Athens in May 2014, Riga/Grobina in September 2014, Stockholm in April 2015, Wrocław in May 2016, Berlin in September 2017, Stockholm in April 2018, Plovdiv in May 2018.

AIM Network received the long- and short-term network funding from the Nordic Culture Point in 2011–2016 and in 2018-20.
A publication summarising the activities of the network was released in May 2017. Second publication is planned.
