UNIT/PITT Society for Art and Critical Awareness is one of the 8EAST founding partners, along with NOW Society. As a charitable non-profit artist-run centre, U/P has been supporting the diverse creative practices of artists in and around Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside since 1975.
Over the last decade, U/P has published a dozen limited edition artist books and essays from emerging and mid-career artists and writers.
