The Media and Visual Arts Housing Association of Calgary (MaVA) began in 2007 as a partnership of several media and visual arts centres and collectives with the objective of developing and establishing a Media and Visual Arts Centre for Calgary.  MaVA’s goal is to develop a world-class Media and Visual Arts (MaVA) Centre for Calgary that is a significant community asset controlled by artists and artist-run organizations for the betterment of all media and visual arts groups within the City of Calgary.   MaVA’s primary mandate is to provide affordable, sustainable and long-term housing for its current and future partner organizations.  MaVA is committed to not only solving the space issues of its member organizations today, but to also be a facilitator for other groups to achieve similar objectives in the future. Current member organizations are: EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society, Quickdraw Animation Society, Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers, Untitled Art Society/UAS Satellite Gallery, and Fairytales Presentation Society.
