2024 CONFERENCE

From the Ashes: Printmaking, Preservation, and Renewal

MAPC 2024 will explore the relationship between printmakers and the natural environment. The conference will take place at Kansas State University from October 2-6, 2024. Topics may include eco-friendly printing techniques, research on organic materials and bio- based chemicals, and print as a physical or conceptual vehicle through which to interface with environmental concerns.

Join a dynamic community of fellow printmakers

We’re proud to be a place where printmakers of all kinds connect, collaborate, and grow. Membership includes discounts, conference eligibility, newsletters, and more.

MAPC provides me with not just a print community but one that is both expansive and welcoming. It is big enough that I get to see new things and make new friends, but intimate enough that I feel like my voice matters.
