Become a Member of the Vancouver Art Book Fair!

VABF Members are part of an engaged community that is passionate about art publishing in Vancouver and beyond. In addition to the Member Benefits they receive, Members contribute to the sustainability and growth of the annual Vancouver Art Book Fair—keeping the event free, while also allowing us to bring out international artists and to pay fair fees to presenters and arts workers. Your cash donation not only supports the production of VABF, but also demonstrates your commitment to fostering Vancouver’s art publishing communities and the establishment of Vancouver as a centre for artists’ publishing.
