Call for Renters
NEW! CALL FOR NON-MEMBER RENTERS
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 making room for non-member printmakers. We're looking for a printmaker that is experienced enough to work independently in a studio, shares our core values of community and empathy, and who might want to just rent for a month, two months, etc but not participate in our Collective.
Our 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.
This offer only accommodates up to three (3) sub-renters a month, and your first few sessions will have a member on site for orientation purposes. This space is ideal for screen printers, monotype and cyanotype artists, and folks who draw as their main practice!
We also want to explicitly and strongly welcome printmakers who come from equity seeking groups including but not limited to BIPOC artists and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
* $300/month studio rent, hydro inclusive, internet will be included once we have a full roster
*. Max three renters, plus 4 collective members in the space
Regular studio access with equipment including
* Screen-printing storage, darkroom, vellum, exposure unit and washout
* Tabletop Jack Richeson relief printing press (9" x 12" prints max)
* Mobile drying racks
* Small library of printmaking and art texts and books
* Office laser printer
* Multiple stationary and mobile workstations
* Recently restored Praga litho pressed, with access to pronto plates
* Flat file for storage of paper
* Small shelf space for your inks and other supplies not provided by the studio
* Provisonal press (proofing press)
* Vandercook proofing press with magnets (no furniture or type available in house)
* Small nipping press (relief or bookbinding)
* Light table for drawing
$20 screen rental for the month (per screen, screen stays in studio)
Renters must supply own inks and papers. We use Speedball emulsion for screen, but renters
welcome to bring their own to use. Please note that we do not have access to a powerwasher at this time.
The space is currently ideal for screen, relief, alternative print and mono-printers, or anyone looking for a larger space to just work on hand-pulled relief prints. The litho press can also be used for waterless photo-litho, but please chat with us first to set up for that.
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.
We are also following COVID regulations and so a booking system will be implemented for both renters and members to share the space safely. Mask use is required when more than one person is in the studio. Proof of vaccination will be mandatory for first-time bookings.
Please contact us at email@example.com 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 your plans to use the studio and for how long. We will review renters and reach back for an interview request.

CALL FOR BOARD MEMBERS!
Position: Volunteer Board Director – up to 3 positions available
Experience: No Experience needed but relatable
skills and/or knowledge expected
Commitment: 4+ hours/month for a 2 year term
Start Date: ONGOING
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.
Please submit your resume with an email of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until suitable candidates are found. To read more about us please check out this page or check us out on social media @inprintca
