TRACT projects is a continually expanding collective of artists and practitioners linked through the participation in, and initiation of group projects. Participants of TRACT projects seek to work collaboratively with other artists, curators, writers, designers, architects, organisations and community groups (this list is not exhaustive) on projects of shared interest.
TRACT artists' work isn't typified by medium or discipline, rather it is defined by process driven, context-specific or context-responsive practice.

"area," 1494, "period or lapse of time," from L. tractus "track, course, space, duration," lit, "a drawing out or pulling," from stem of trahere "to pull, draw," from PIE base *tragh- "to draw, drag, move" (cf. Slovenian trag "trace, track," M.Ir. tragud "ebb," with variant form *dhragh-; see drag). The meaning "stretch of land or water" is first recorded 1553. Specific U.S. sense of "plot of land for development" is recorded from 1912; tract houses attested from 1963.
"little book," 1432, probably a shortened form of L. tractatus "a handling, treatise, treatment," from tractare "to handle" (see treat). Not in any other language, according to OED.
