Call for New Artist Member
NEW! CALL FOR ARTIST MEMBERS!
Our motto has always been "Printmakers love company" and that's exactly what we're looking for! We are a feminist printmaking collective established in 2008 on the hunt for new members to join us. We're looking for a printmaker that brings a variety of experiences and perspectives to the group and who's work/themes draw cohesive ties with our other members.
Our artist members are the cornerstone of our community printmaking studio, opened in 2018 at 58 Wade Ave, right smack in an artistic hub, on the same street as Patel Brown Gallery, nearby Mercer Union and in the same neighbourhood as MOCA.
As a collective we look to support one another in our ongoing independent projects, work collaboratively when the mood strikes, execute community art projects, exhibitions and run and maintain our studio. We're looking for someone who wants to join equally into our community, not just exhibit work or use our studio. A willingness to participate in the organizing and implementation of our projects is a must, regardless of past experience.
We also want to explicitly and strongly encourage applications from artists who come from equity seeking groups including but not limited to BIPOC artists and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
* $300/month studio rent
* Staff studio from 11am – 4pm one Saturday every 6 weeks in rotation with other members
Stocked studio with 24/7 access with equipment including
* Screen-printing storage, darkroom, exposure unit and washout

We are an equal opportunity collective looking to be as accessible as possible with our limited resources. Please note – our community print studio is in a building only accessible up a handful of steps. We invite you to contact us to discuss if you require or are concerned about accessible accommodations.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your C.V. and photos of your work – or a link to your website containing that info and a short email about why you are interested in joining us. We will review applicants, respond, and invite those selected for a meeting with our current members. Looking to invite prospective members to join anytime after November 2020. One reference will be required.

The inPrint Collective was founded in 2008 with a mission to foster the art of printmaking, support our members and share our love of printmaking with communities. Over the past 10 years we have participated in many exhibitions, dozens of large scale community projects and as of 2018 have opened our first brick and mortar community print studio in the Bloordale/Junction Triangle communities. As an incorporated non-profit organization we receive funding through grants, partnerships/sponsorships, fundraisers and other revenue generating avenues with an annual operating budget of 30k. Our momentum is strong for growth and we’re ready to ignite our Board!
The inPrint Collective’s Directors are comprised of leaders who are dedicated to the organization’s mission and to a thriving arts and culture community across the GTA. Our Members are our champions and support the collective to fully realize its potential and impact. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a Board, our Directors are ambassadors for the organization and are fully engaged in identifying and securing the resources necessary for inPrint to advance its mission and goals.
We are currently recruiting for up to 3 diverse leaders with expertise in any of the following:
• Knowledge of a non-profit board structure and governance expectations
• Bookkeeping and financial background a considerable asset
• Fund and revenue development ideas and ambition
• Administrative acumen and organization
• Marketing and communication skills and systems
Serving on The inPrint Collective’s Board of Directors is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about strengthening leadership and governance in the nonprofit sector. A perfect opportunity for an up and coming leader to work together with an emerging organization in both growth and professional experience. No prior board experience necessary but relatable skills and/or knowledge is expected to be outlined in their submission. inPrint wishes their Board to represent voices as diverse as the communities we work with and encourage applications from those often under-represented in leadership roles and those who understand intersectional identities.
