Royal Canadian Academy of Arts

The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts is a constituency of over 650 working artists, designers and craftspersons. We are one of Canada’s oldest continually-operating artist-run organizations. The RCA was founded in 1880 by Canada’s Governor General, John Campbell, 9th Duke of Argyll in conjunction with the establishment of the National Gallery of Canada. Today’s RCA is committed to assuring a diversity of members and artistic disciplines. Our over 650 established visual art, design and fine craft professionals include architects, landscape architects, painters, printmakers, photographers, book artists, graphic designers, industrial designers, interior designers, fashion designers, textile artists, ceramicists, sculptors, performance artists, installation artists, filmmakers, videographers, animators, type designers, metalsmiths, media artists and more.
