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!

open books

Hello!

Years ago, a co-worker took at peek at the book I was reading during my lunch-break and asked what I thought of it. “It’s good,” I replied. “Of course, I’ve read it at least five times, so I already know it’s good.” I held up the copy of my book to show him how worn it was from the multiple readings.

“Why would you re-read it if you already know how it’s going to end?” He couldn’t understand any of the reasons I gave him and eventually I tried, “It’s the same as watching a movie you love over and over again.” He replied with a blank stare.

I know I’m not the only one who likes to indulge in old favourites (perhaps many times over). So my question today is…

What book(s) do you re-read?

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

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I asked what you thought the role of an artist is. Today I’m wondering what you think the role of art is. Does art itself have a different intent/responsibility than the artist creating the work?

Fill in the blank:

“The role of art is to _____________.” Is it different than the role of the artist?

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

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Not that it’s anything new, but I’ve noticed a lot of “The point of art is…” and “It’s an artist’s responsibility to…” statements lately and it always interests me when people make definitive remarks about something that can mean/do so many things. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately so thought I’d ask your thoughts.

Fill in the blank:

“The role of the artist is to _____________.”

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

Have a wonderful day!
