Hello!

Sorry for the lack of lists last week, friends! After considering various options to solve our website problems, CAC has opted to move to our very own server (the move will be happening a.s.a.p.). It seems that with our incredible growth over the past while (including over 1000 members in the few short months since we’ve introduced that feature, as well as an ever-expanding readership, content, and resources), we needed to make the investment to keep CAC running as best as we can.

This change means that the big plans that were going to be launched on October 1st will instead gradually be announced over the next few weeks and months. Be sure to check back daily so you don’t miss any of the exciting new changes and amazing opportunities!

For now, here’s a MASSIVE job list with plenty of professional possibilities to begin your week with.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

As expected, the CAC community has been coming up with some great suggestions of articles and interviews they’d like to see on CAC Magazine as well as events they would be interested in seeing covered. Today we’re wondering…

Are there any books, albums, shows, etc. you would like Canada Arts Connect Magazine to review?

We’d love to hear your answers in the comments below, on Twitter at @CANArtsConnect or give us your feedback to all of our survey questions HERE.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Monday is a holiday, so our job list and calls for submissions list will go up on Tuesday next week instead. Thankfully I realized this ahead of time, but often my unusual work schedule means that I’m unaware of certain dates and happenings. And even if I do remember that it’s a holiday, I usually work through it anyway — such is the nature of working for yourself and running an independent arts biz/community. How about you?

Do you keep unusual work hours? Do you often work through holidays? Will you be working on Monday?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I have great respect for mentors and their value to those who they pass their knowledge and experience on to. I’m always looking for new mentors myself when it comes to my creative craft and business practices, and I love helping others establish similar relationships.

So today my question is…

If you could be mentored by anyone throughout history, who would it be?

I’d love to hear your answer below after you check out the great list of job opportunities on today’s list.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I asked: Should artists / musicians / actors / writers be role models?

Today I’m curious about what role you play and what responsibility you might have to those who admire you and your work.

Do you consider yourself a role model? Would you want to be?

I’d love to hear your answers and thoughts in the comments below after you check out the list of great job opportunities I have for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Ryan (CAC’s awesome Business Manager) has been doing up the Friday lists lately, but I thought I’d handle it for him today since yesterday he completed his first year back to his studies in order to manage CAC’s growing needs. A big, huge congratulations to Ryan and we’re excited to support him as he continues this process!

And while we’re on the topic…

How do you continue your artistic / professional development? Courses? Classes? Workshops? Books? Online resources? Other ways?

Tear of the Ice Queen - Jason Nelson

Hello!

Have you submitted your art to our Flickr group but it still hasn’t been chosen as one of our featured pieces? Here are some reasons of why that might be…

1. Pieces must fit the slideshow on the front page.

  • If the pic of your art is small, it won’t fit the necessary space requirements. The original pics must be considerably larger than the ones seen at the top of the posts (bigger is better).
  • Pics that are more horizontal fit the space better as opposed to vertical pieces (if your pic is large enough, vertical pieces can still be used).

2. Artists must be identifiable.

  • If your Flickr user name is different from your CAC name, then I’m not able to properly credit the work and therefore can’t use it. If this is an issue, simply send us a message over Flickr letting us know your CAC user name.

If you haven’t submitted your art yet, be sure to check out and join our group so that we can showcase your work to the thousands of people that drop by our site every day. http://www.flickr.com/groups/canadaartsconnect/

Then, of course, take a look at today’s job list below!

Have a wonderful day!
