In 1973, he moved to Vancouver and joined the Western Front, where he became involved in performance art, radio, shadow theatre, video, publishing and curating. He was a founding director of PAARC, the Pacific Association of Artist-run Centres. He has travelled widely across Canada and has produced numerous projects in collaboration with artists in Europe, Africa and Asia. In 1999 he was co-founder of Centre A, the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. An exhibition survey, “Hank Bull: Connexion,” toured to five cities across Canada in 2015-17.
