About Us


Massy Arts Society is a community hub dedicated to supporting the practices of Indigenous and over-excluded artists. Our programming is extensive in its multiple forms: open talks, debates, book launches, art shows, performances, concerts, fairs, and many others. We are grateful to receive support from the FPCCBCACGovernment of Canada , which allows us to pay all artists to showcase their work in the gallery for the 2024 year. We are always seeking out grants to support the work we do, if you see a grant you think we might be a good fit for, please send it to us at info@massyarts.com. 

We acknowledge we operate on the traditional, ancestral, unceded, and occupied territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Located in the historic Ming Wo building in Vancouver’s Chinatown, Massy Arts Society is a ground-level, wheelchair-accessible space featuring an interior gallery space and a window gallery. Opened in September 2021, the new Massy Arts Society gallery hosts visual art exhibitions, book launches, artist talks, performances, and community events. 

If you are an artist interested in exhibiting with Massy Arts, please see our Call for Submissions .
