In 2013, a national team of academic researchers and community partner organizations, hosted by SFU’s International Centre of Art for Social Change ( received a $2.5 million grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to run a six-year national collaborative study — the ASC! Project — on the current state and future needs of arts for social change (ASC) in Canada. 
The project included team members and collaborators from across Canada, employed some 39 Research Associates and Research Assistants, and received more than $1 million in matching contributions. In addition to performances, exhibitions and diverse community events, outcomes from this project include numerous text and video resources, as well as practical tools for the ASC sector, many of which are available on the comprehensive website. 
This report presents a very brief overview of this large-scale national project.
