Hello!

I’m determined to keep myself sorted in the coming months and replying promptly to emails is always one of my priorities when it comes to keeping on top of things. However it seems to be something that many struggle with. Do you have trouble keeping on top of endless emails or are you able to manage the ever-incoming stream?

What are your tips/advice for keeping your inbox under control?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great list of job opportunities below.

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!

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!

We still seem to be having issues with the website, but in between it running super slowly and completely shutting down, I’ve managing to gather the jobs together for a MASSIVE list today.

Hopefully the glitches with the site will be fixed soon (we’re on the case!), but until then have an amazing day and hopefully there are a few opportunities below that are perfect 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!

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.

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!

I tried to take some time off yesterday after weeks of pushing myself too hard and too far. Relaxing doesn’t always come easy for me and when I know there’s work to do, I can’t seem to chill out at all. What about you?

What are your tips for allowing yourself the proper downtime?

How do you get yourself to relax?

Have a wonderful day!
