Hello!

I asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

We have some great job opportunities on the list today as well as more internships than usual. What are your thoughts on internships?

A useful way to gain experience?

Or a way for employers to take advantage of those new to the industry?

Perhaps sometimes it’s one and sometimes it’s the other?

Be sure to leave your thoughts below after you check out the list of jobs (and internships) below.

Hello!

It’s June 1st and summer feels like it’s already in full swing in my neighbourhood. I’ve been taking full advantage of the beautiful weather by enjoying long walks to get inspiration, reading at the park, and working at my desk with the windows wide open and the gorgeous breeze coming in. What about you?

How does your routine change in the summer?

Do your work habits change? Are there certain types of artistic practices you only do in the summer? Do you get involved with any events?

Let us know in the comments below after you check out the list of today’s opportunities.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello! 

We had our first “staff meeting” last night which happened through a chat right here on our website. Since our core staff and magazine team are located across the country, we’re excited about the possibility of connecting more regularly this way. 

We’re thinking the simple chat feature might also be fun for our members to connect! We have a few ideas in the works, but would also love to hear from you. 

Are there themes or ideas of chats you would like us to host? Please leave your ideas in the comments below.

Have a wonderful day!
