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!

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!

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!

Monday is a holiday, so our job list and calls for submissions list will go up on Tuesday next week instead. Thankfully I realized this ahead of time, but often my unusual work schedule means that I’m unaware of certain dates and happenings. And even if I do remember that it’s a holiday, I usually work through it anyway — such is the nature of working for yourself and running an independent arts biz/community. How about you?

Do you keep unusual work hours? Do you often work through holidays? Will you be working on Monday?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Simon!

I had a very exciting few days last week that included meeting someone special, an interview, endless preparations, calls & texts & emails, and finally on Friday, I brought home my new dog!

Simon (full name: Simon Cool Ziggy Hayward Ossandon as named by my two little ones) is a two year old black retriever that came to us from our amazing local humane society.

We’re thrilled!

We have a cat, Tut, but after our other cat, Baya, passed away earlier this year, we were really looking forward to welcoming a new pet into our home.

So today my question is about pets and other animals (whether friend or foe).

Do animals inspire your art?

I’d love to hear your answers below (and perhaps even hear about your pets and animal-themed work) after you check out the great list of jobs I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I did a little people-watching yesterday and noticed one particular woman who was strolling past in a wonderfully colourful, wildly printed dress. I began to wonder what influenced such a vibrant sense of style. I find my own clothes to be colourful as well and I love prints. I like playing with make-up and am never timid about trying new & unusual hairstyles. I’ve always had a unique sense of style, which seems to be pretty common among artistic types.

Do you think your artistic nature influences your fashion and personal style?

Hello!

I asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I asked what you thought the role of an artist is. Today I’m wondering what you think the role of art is. Does art itself have a different intent/responsibility than the artist creating the work?

Fill in the blank:

“The role of art is to _____________.” Is it different than the role of the artist?

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.

FURIOS - Bruce Teel

[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

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!
