Malaspina is a nonprofit artist-run centre that advances education, promotes excellence in the art form, and increases the public’s understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and print media. Malaspina is a provincially incorporated society and a registered Canadian charity, founded in 1975 by a group of printmaking students, fellows, and instructors from the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr University of Art + Design). Their objective was to secure federal funding for an international printmaking exhibition. In the past 40 years, Malaspina has developed into a support organization for print culture by building strong relationships with artists, organizations, and cultural practitioners throughout the world. Its programs have been expanded beyond exhibitions to include studio rentals, workshops, mentorships, archives, residencies, and sales. Malaspina has been situated in a 2,500 square foot facility on Granville Island since 1981.
