Mandate: Harcourt House Artist Run Centre is a charitable organization existing to support visual artists and inspire the community through visual art exhibitions, education, low cost studio rentals and discourse.

About: Harcourt House is one of only four public galleries, and one of three artist-run centres in Edmonton. We deliver a host of services to both artists and the community – and act as an alternative location for the presentation, distribution and promotion of contemporary art. In our exhibition programming we seek both emerging and established artists to present work that aims to engage. Harcourt House Gallery is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm. The gallery annually presents a minimum of 10 five-week exhibitions, from local, provincial and national artists, collectives and arts organizations.

Harcourt House Artist Run Centre is legally titled the Where Edmonton Community Artists Network (WECAN) Society. Our organization was incorporated in 1987 with the intention to provide assistance to victims of the devastating tornado that hit Edmonton earlier that year. With the success of the art auction fundraiser the WECAN Society devoted its attention and energy into creating a permanent centre for the arts.
