In an effort to keep our communities, and our staff safe, Artspeak will remain closed to the public for the time being. We’re in the office, and will keep you updated on upcoming programming. More info here. Please email us if you need to be in touch.





Artspeak is a non-profit artist run centre established in 1986. The mandate of the gallery is to encourage a dialogue between visual art and writing. Artspeak actively contributes to cultural communities through our commitment to artists producing challenging, innovative work in diverse media, our affiliation with like-minded organizations, and the public interest we generate in contemporary art.

Artspeak is located on the unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh)
First Nations.
