The Vancouver Society for the Creation of Independent Art (VSCIA) is a non-profit organization based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, which aims to help and promote local artists. We hold an annual artist market – MiniComi and try to link artists and local art/craft suppliers together.

We are always looking for suggestions on what can be done to help local artists. If you are a store owner, we will be happy if you consider sponsoring us in any way.

MiniComi is a 1 day artists market inspired by those in Japan (eg. Comiket). Artists will bring a wide variety of items for sale. This may include self published comics, doujinshi (fan comics), doujinSoft (we’re hoping), prints, pins, jewellery, plushies and many other creative things. Like Comiket in Japan, Cosplay is most welcomed!

And also, admission is FREE!! Even if you are not an artist, drop by to have some fun!
