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!

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!

FURIOS - Bruce Teel

“FURIOS” by CAC Member Bruce L Teel (@exodous)
[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!

How do you cool down when summer heats up?

Hello!

It’s been a hot summer so far, which can sometimes make work difficult. Brutal heat and humidity can equal stifling offices/sets/studios, cranky co-workers, and materials that refuse to set and dry.

How do you cope and work through the heat?

Have a wonderful day!
