Artist Andrea Slavik explores the working conditions that have lead employees at the Foxconn factory in Shenzen, China to threaten to, or to actually commit suicide.

In response to these threats, the factory, which manufactures many of our favourite gadgets such as iPhones and iPads, has installed large suicide prevention nets on the workers dormitories.

Hello!

Well, I’ve caught my first cold of the season and it’s a whopper! Snuffed nose, sore throat, and my head feels like a balloon. Of course, this comes on a day when a special little person in my life is celebrating their birthday, so it looks like I’ll be drinking lots of tea to make it through the celebrations.

Despite feeling ill and having a party on hand (don’t worry, it’s only the family party today, so I’m not spreading germs), I’ve still managed to pop up a job list for you. I hope it has the opportunity you’re looking for!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Sorry for the lack of lists last week, friends! After considering various options to solve our website problems, CAC has opted to move to our very own server (the move will be happening a.s.a.p.). It seems that with our incredible growth over the past while (including over 1000 members in the few short months since we’ve introduced that feature, as well as an ever-expanding readership, content, and resources), we needed to make the investment to keep CAC running as best as we can.

This change means that the big plans that were going to be launched on October 1st will instead gradually be announced over the next few weeks and months. Be sure to check back daily so you don’t miss any of the exciting new changes and amazing opportunities!

For now, here’s a MASSIVE job list with plenty of professional possibilities to begin your week with.

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!

Hello!

I’m regularly asked by CAC readers “how to get started” in one area of the arts or another, whether it be related to education, career, techniques, or other aspects of art.

One specific question I hear is how to start an art collection.

I’m asked if people should buy art because of the value of the piece or fame of the artist. I’m asked it people should start with small pieces, then move on to more daring examples. I’m asked for any advice on how to make smart purchases and good investments.

I’m curious how our community of artistic professionals (and art enthusiasts) began their own collections.

How did you start your own art collection?

How do you decide what you yourself buy and display?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I mentioned an old co-worker of mine who couldn’t understand why I would read a book multiple times. When I tried to explain, I compared it with re-watching favourite movies, which he couldn’t understand either. 

I asked what books you re-read, but today I’d love to know…

What movies do you watch over and over again?

It would be great to see your answers in the comments below. But first, be sure to check out the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

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!

FURIOS - Bruce Teel

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!

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!
