Fundraising for your project?

Are you fundraising for your current / future project?

Are you running a campaign like Kickstarter or Indiegogo?

Are you holding an online auction or some other fundraising endeavour?

I’ve been getting a lot of requests from people to share their fundraising efforts with the CAC community. We’d love to support any of your efforts by spreading the word, so I’ve set up a section dedicated to just this.

Fundraising – Looking for Backers, Donations, & Other Sources of Funds?

Leave the details and links in our Fundraising section to let us know about (and encourage support for) your project(s)!

Good luck in all of your efforts, including the job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Creating your art is often only the first step in the process of getting it out to the public. Websites and services exist to help in that regard, and we’re interested in what you think of them.

Have you ever sold your designs on products/merch through Cafepress or Zazzle?

What are your thoughts on either or both sites?

We’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments below!

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Art - Heather Plewes

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!

Canadian Arts Jobs from around the Web – Thursday, January 26, 2012
January 26, 2012


Our new columns have been creating a lot of buzz and yesterday another one launched.

With The Art of PR: Part 1 ”…you can expect stories focusing on both the after-hours aspects of being an artist–what fashion trends are in, for example–to practical career advice that deals with the more “fluffy” side of the artist lifestyle: building your brand, interview and working wardrobes, etc.

This week’s entry will focus on public relations in the art industry and tips specifically for artists on managing their public relations.”

Including an interview with Rebecca Webster of Webster Media Consulting.

Check it out by clicking here. And of course, we have a great list of jobs for you below.

Have a wonderful day!

Canadian Arts Jobs from around the Web – Monday, January 9, 2012
January 9, 2012


Welcome back! I hope you had wonderful holidays and an amazing new year. We’re still working on our big relaunch, but we wanted to get our lists started as soon as possible.

There will be a few changes to our lists this year:

1) I’ll be taking over the lists as Ryan is taking over more of CAC’s business duties.

2) I’ll now be doing the job lists EVERY WEEKDAY. It will be a lot of work, especially with the added features we’re introducing, but I’m going to try my best.

3) The calls for submissions & auditions lists will continue to be weekly, but will now be on the site every Monday.

We hope you find these changes useful and be sure to check back tomorrow and every weekday for our lists!

To start you off, there are 108 jobs on today’s list.

Have a wonderful day!
