Intermedia Society

Archives available at University of British Columbia Library Rare Books and Special Collections, Vancouver: Intermedia Society Fonds. Information:;rad. Intermedia was established in 1967 as a non-profit society. Intermedia fulfilled a need in the Vancouver artistic community for a central meeting place for creative minds from numerous fields. With the assistance of grants from Canada Council and the Federal Government, Intermedia sponsored exhibitions, workshops, educational seminars and impromptu social and artistic gatherings. Gradually, Intermedia began to decline in importance as the spin-offs of the society became more important. While Intermedia Press, Ltd. had eclipsed its founding group by 1974, Intermedia Society had created and initiated an exciting new art scene in Vancouver and left in its wake many groups that have become central to the development of modern art and writing on the West Coast.
