Graphica Creativa is the oldest international print exhibition in the Nordic countries. It is arranged in Jyväskylä, Finland every third year. The first Graphica Creativa took place in 1975. The purpose of the exhibition is to raise the standard and value of printmaking, to launch and promote printmaking itself and to increase the interest in printmaking in Finland. The next Graphica Creativa exhibition will be held in Summer 2009.
Thanks to Graphica Creativa Jyväskylä has become a centre of printmaking. To carry out the project an association called The Graphica Creativa Society was formed in the 1970’s, and since then it has managed to make printmaking more known. Founded in 1978 The Centre for Printmaking offers working space to printmakers and arranges varying print exhibitions. The collection of The Association of Finnish Printmakers, which today contains nearly 4800 prints, was placed permanently in Jyväskylä in 1981.
