The non-profit association 'asbl Espace René Carcan' was created in 1990 by René Carcan (1925-1993). Its main aim is to « develop the art of printmaking ».
Twenty years after his death, 'the Espace René Carcan', in partnership with the 'King Baudouin Foundation', decided to create the 'René Carcan International Prize for Printmaking' which will take place for the first time in 2014, thus fulfilling the greatest wish of the artist.
