As expected, the CAC community has been coming up with some great suggestions of articles and interviews they’d like to see on CAC Magazine as well as events they would be interested in seeing covered. Today we’re wondering…

Are there any books, albums, shows, etc. you would like Canada Arts Connect Magazine to review?

We’d love to hear your answers in the comments below, on Twitter at @CANArtsConnect or give us your feedback to all of our survey questions HERE.

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.]


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!

It’s Family Day in some parts of the country, but I’m sure many in our community are still working away, so I’ve gone ahead with today’s job list as usual. Our calls for submissions & auditions list will be up right after this one, so be sure to check that out as well. 

If you didn’t happen to see, we had some great pieces go up over on Canada Arts Connect Magazine last week:

What are the things you value in living a creative life? Take Charge of What’s Important to You

What is the most difficult thing to capture about the human experience? The Writer’s Block Issue 2: Writing Humanity
