Scope and Content

Records thought to have been managed by the Chinese Arts Centre's Exhibition Coordinator/Project Space Manager, 2001-2003. Includes records possibly created for the Centre's web site; records relating to exhibitions at the Edge Street premises; and records relating to the development of the Centre's residency programme and the artists' database. 

Record Resource Extent

79.67 MB


The records have been arranged to copy the folder structure in the original accession. 


The set represents a folder named: 'David - Breathe Folder\CAC' which was held in a back-up of files managed by the Centre Residency Coordinator dating up to 2010 (ACC/2021/1). The records are believed to have been managed by David Hancock, initially when he was the Exhibition Co-ordinator at the Centre in 2001 and after he became the Project Space Co-ordinator (later Residency Coordinator) shortly before the move to Thomas Street. 

Although the last modified date of the majority of the files in this set is 2004/01/04, it appears they were largely created and edited before the Centre moved to Thomas Street in October 2003. The later modified date may be due to the files being transferred from one filing system to another after the Centre moved to new premises. 

Some of the records within this set were stored in other 'legacy' back-up held by the Centre, but have been transferred to this set as their metadata and last modified date show they were originally stored within these folders.
