Hi Josh, I can find myself in what you write, although I would open the term artists to all creatives (also writers, journalists, radio, heritage experts, historians, environmentalists, activists, community workers, educators, scientists, researchers and all cultural professionals that look for creative location-based ways to intermediate or approach their field of expertise).

From the wlc point of view is the archival aspect as well a priority, preserving the past, but also the present. Much locative media platforms have a short life span, and keep coming and going, to have their collections secured for a future is as important as looking back.
Many of the earliest pieces were very individual, in early 2000. It is worth delving into this prehistory. Locative Media Archeology.
If we go to a larger scope it would be good to explore (European) funding, any partners out there?
