Canadian Arts Jobs – 05/09/12

beads 2

Hello!

Yesterday was a big day for a lot of us as many headed back to school and those of us getting back to work faced a new day, week, month and season all at once. As we all delve into the dizzying pace of daily life, it’s important to slow down every once in a while and perhaps even do something fun.

Tonight, after I get all my work done, I plan to watch a funny movie. So my question today is…

In your opinion, what is the funniest movie ever made?

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

It’s a good idea to treat yourself every once in a while. Life is stressful, work is hard, and the pace that we we’re constantly moving at is enough to make anyone feel rough at times.

So my question today is…

What are your artistic indulgences? How do you treat yourself when it comes to creativity? 

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

We still seem to be having issues with the website, but in between it running super slowly and completely shutting down, I’ve managing to gather the jobs together for a MASSIVE list today.

Hopefully the glitches with the site will be fixed soon (we’re on the case!), but until then have an amazing day and hopefully there are a few opportunities below that are perfect for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Heart - Lesley Hampton

“Heart” by CAC Member Lesley Hampton (@lesleyhampton)
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

The majority of you liked the new way I set up the list yesterday (i.e. sorting it by provinces), so I think we’ll keep it this way for now. We’ve also had it suggested that we separate the Toronto jobs since they dominate the Ontario section, so I’ll try that out as well.

As I mentioned yesterday, we’re always on the lookout for more websites to collect job opportunities from. So we’d love to know…

Other than CAC, where do you look for jobs in the Canadian arts?

Have a wonderful day!

Yesterday, I spotted buds on the trees for the first time this year. Tiny green dots covering branches that were perfectly bare the day before. Another reminder that you never know what’s going to pop up overnight.

And that includes opportunities like the ones on our list below as well as the job list that went up just before this.

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Art - Heather Plewes

“Abstract Art” by Heather Plewes (@hplewes) 
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

Yesterday was a looong day for me as the night before I went to bed at 1 a.m. then woke up at 5:40 a.m. Every day/night has pretty much been that way for the last few weeks as I try to balance everything I need to do while juggling a demanding (!) schedule.

Feeling the lack of sleep dragging at my body and fogging my mind, I asked over CAC, Twitter, and Facebook how our community keeps their (artistic) energy up.

Here are a few of their answers:

“Little naps during the day and night! And eating energy making foods and lots of water…” - Susan Weiss

“take stretch breaks, dance and….coffee helps too :)” - Dorothy Weiss

“Good music and awesome coffee – not crappy coffee, this is important! Good tasting coffee = good work” - Ben Purkiss

“I pace myself and I take short frequent and guilt free breaks to avoid burning out early.”@sanleigh

“i can only write out at coffee shops. The tea and company keeps me going.” – laurie petrou (@lauriepetrou)

“I eat lots of nuts and make sure I have something good/new to listen to:)” – D’Andrea Bowie (@d_andreab)

“Healthy snacks, and drinking lots of water. Being busy with dance makes me very happy and grateful, so that helps the most!” –  Nicole Rose Bond (@NicoleRoseBond)

“Going to the gym totally helps” - @NFBMediatheque

“Healthy food choices and hydration. Plus quality coffee…” – Kate U (@TOViolinKate)

“Gym and/or ride my horse. Mostly “or” (no time for both!).” - @wpgreview

“3 cups of tea before 10:00am” – Karina Bergmans, @KBergmans

The suggestions kept coming, with most including food, exercise, naps, music, and coffee. Lots of coffee. Good coffee. Confession: I don’t drink coffee. No wonder my mind is so foggy! lol!

How do YOU keep your energy up when you’re super busy? Leave a comment below!

Perhaps finding the perfect opportunity will fuel you up, so here’s a great list of jobs for you below.

Have a wonderful day!
