New Weekly Round-Ups from Around Canada Arts Connect
start art

We’re changing a few things around Canada Arts Connect and one of those things is this blog section. We’ll now be using it for our “Weekly Round-Up” which will include the latest listings from that week as well as the latest posts from Canada Arts Connect Magazine (which is also going through a major change).

We’ll be starting the weekly round-ups next Friday, so be sure to check for it here. OR, sign up for our weekly eNewsletter so you don’t miss a thing!

If you’re looking for the listings, they can now be found here (jobs, internships, volunteers, auditions, calls for submissions, space for rent, workshops/courses/webinars, events).

We’re Launching a Weekly (Short & Sweet) eNewsletter with the Opportunities You Want to See!
eNewsletter - wide

We’re changing up our eNewsletter here at Canada Arts Connect!

We’ve noticed that when we send out our eNewsletter each month, some listings have already expired (being that they only stay open for a week or two). We don’t want you to miss ANY of the opportunities that are listed on CAC, so we’ve decided to start sending our eNewsletter out weekly.

It will be smaller, so that our readers won’t be overwhelmed. Just a quick read so that you’ll be able to scan the latest offerings that have popped up around CAC.

Be sure to sign up below!

Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings from Canada Arts Connect!
by jan willemby jan willem

Hello, CAC friends!

It’s a busy time of year around here as we get ready for Christmas and the New Year. We’re also in the middle of a big move and because of this, things might be a little quieter around here than usual, but we’ll be buzzing again in the New Year (January 6th).

We hope you’re enjoying the colder weather and seasonal cheer and we look forward to connecting with you in 2014!

Happy Holidays!

Happy 5th Anniversary

March marks the 5th anniversary of Canada Arts Connect! Woo!

Although we’re a little too busy to have a party to celebrate this year (perhaps next year or for our 10th we’ll throw a big bash!), I would still like to thank each and every one of you that has supported CAC along the way! It has been a tough road, but we’ve come so very far in our first five years and I’m incredibly excited about what’s ahead.

To those of you who have been with me since the beginning and to those who have just discovered us, THANK YOU from the entire Canada Arts Connect team!

If you’d like to find out more about how Canada Arts Connect started, be sure to check out The Story of Canada Arts Connect that I’ve recently popped up here.

As always, it has been and continues to be wonderful to connect with you!

CAC Welcomes our new advertising partner, Yelp! Check out their free suite of state of the art tools
February 14, 2013


You probably know by now that Yelp is an important resource for finding and connecting with businesses all across Canada, and for reviewing what’s great and not so great in our local communities. But did you know that there is a free suite of state of the art tools on Yelp specifically for business owners? Whatever the size or character of your biz (make-up artist, theatre, non-profit, dance company, magician?) you can add it to Yelp, upload photos, and write a description that will help you show up in customer searches for the services you provide!

The last quarter saw a monthly average of 84 million unique visitors using Yelp to make buying decisions; spending a few minutes to put these free tools to work for you just makes sense (and dollars too, hopefully!). Put a personal face to your business by claiming the page, filling out your profile, responding to reviews and recommending other businesses you love. Watch your stats to see what’s working, and if you are in a city with Yelp Community Manager and an Elite Squad, you can even get in touch to see if there are ways to spotlight what you at special Elite Events and Yelper Parties like these recent shindigs in Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver!

Canadian Arts Jobs – 28/09/12
September 28, 2012

Fonts are interesting, not only in themselves, but also in how people view them. Some people simply don’t notice fonts and couldn’t care less. Others are passionate about them. Seriously, don’t even get people started on Comic Sans ;)

But that leads me to our questions for today…

What fonts do you love/hate? Which do you use most often? And which do you use for what?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the list of great job opportunities below. 

Have a wonderful day!
