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!

I’ll be including the questions on the upcoming job lists as our “CAC Question(s) of the Day” so please let us know what you’d like to see!

Our question today is…

Hello!

Yesterday I asked: Should artists / musicians / actors / writers be role models?

Today I’m curious about what role you play and what responsibility you might have to those who admire you and your work.

Do you consider yourself a role model? Would you want to be?

I’d love to hear your answers and thoughts in the comments below after you check out the list of great job opportunities I have for you.

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!

open books

Hello!

Years ago, a co-worker took at peek at the book I was reading during my lunch-break and asked what I thought of it. “It’s good,” I replied. “Of course, I’ve read it at least five times, so I already know it’s good.” I held up the copy of my book to show him how worn it was from the multiple readings.

“Why would you re-read it if you already know how it’s going to end?” He couldn’t understand any of the reasons I gave him and eventually I tried, “It’s the same as watching a movie you love over and over again.” He replied with a blank stare.

I know I’m not the only one who likes to indulge in old favourites (perhaps many times over). So my question today is…

What book(s) do you re-read?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below after you check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Ryan (CAC’s awesome Business Manager) has been doing up the Friday lists lately, but I thought I’d handle it for him today since yesterday he completed his first year back to his studies in order to manage CAC’s growing needs. A big, huge congratulations to Ryan and we’re excited to support him as he continues this process!

And while we’re on the topic…

How do you continue your artistic / professional development? Courses? Classes? Workshops? Books? Online resources? Other ways?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments section after you check out the great list of job opportunities for you 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!

Hello!

Hello!

We’re going to be switching things up a bit this week with Ryan (our Business Manager) starting to help me with some of the job lists. As CAC continues to grow, my workload is increasing. Ryan, at the same time, is busy taking full-time courses. We’re hoping between the two of us we’ll be able to handle the lists each and every weekday.

This week, I’ll still be doing the lists until Thursday, then Ryan will handle Friday’s. After that, Ryan will take care of Monday and Friday’s job lists as well as Monday’s calls for submissions & auditions list. I’ll be handling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

So be sure to give Ryan a “Hello!” on Friday’s list!

And, of course, I have a great list of jobs for you below to start off your week.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Are you inspired to start another week? Does your working environment help with that?

I love to see where people work and where they create their art. I’m currently without an official office or studio and it’s driving me nuts! What about you?

Where do you create your art?

What does your studio / office look like?

We’d love if you’d show us a pic of your space in our Studios & Work Spaces album. And be sure to tell us a bit about it!

And, of course, we have a great list of jobs for you to start the week off with.

Have a wonderful day!
