The FCA has 12 Chapters across the country. Chapters organize their own local exhibitions, Chapter meetings, and workshops. Your local Chapter provides networking opportunities and support to fellow artists in your community, outside and in addition to the programming that takes place in Vancouver.

 

If you're looking to take part in Chapter activities, you must be a member with the Federation in Vancouver first, using the menu options to the right.

 

You can then learn more about and join your local Chapter here.
