Canadian Arts Jobs – 08/29/12

Hello!

Have you ever experienced that “I wish *I* had thought of that!” feeling? Perhaps it’s a piece of art or line of a song. Maybe an idea for a story or theme for a play. I’m sure at one point or another we all have felt something like this.

So today my question is…

What is the one piece of work (art, song, book, etc.) by someone else that you wish YOU had created?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (and we always get plenty of response over Twitter and Facebook as well). And be sure to also check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you today.

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!

SUBMIT YOUR ART TO BE FEATURED ON CAC! We have a NEW place to add your art for our lists! To make things easier to submit your art to be featured on our job lists and calls for submissions & auditions lists, we’ve added an album here on the website (so members no longer have to use the outside Flickr group).

We’d love to feature all kinds of work – from photographers to accessories designers to painters to landscape designers.

Each day a piece will randomly be chosen to be the featured art appearing on our job lists or calls for submissions & auditions lists on the front page of our website and is promoted over our Twitter, Facebook, and the Members Activity area of our website.

Click here to add your art now or visit: http://canadaartsconnect.com/forums/topic/list-art/

Hello! 

We had our first “staff meeting” last night which happened through a chat right here on our website. Since our core staff and magazine team are located across the country, we’re excited about the possibility of connecting more regularly this way. 

We’re thinking the simple chat feature might also be fun for our members to connect! We have a few ideas in the works, but would also love to hear from you. 

Are there themes or ideas of chats you would like us to host? Please leave your ideas in the comments below.

Have a wonderful day!
