CARFAC BC Professional Workshops for Artists

CARFAC BC is into high gear this season with a program of panels and workshops thanks to the support of the BC Arts Council and the City of Vancouver. 

After a successful series in Victoria last month, CARFAC BC held the first of three free Vancouver panels last week to an audience of almost 100 guests. In conjunction with these panels, they are presenting two workshops with seasoned experts specifically geared towards artists wanting to learn more about making a living through their practice. CARFAC members receive a discount on the ticket price.
