CARFAC National presents:
Artists for Artists
Mentorship, teaching strategies and other tools for visual artists
May 31 – June 2, 2013, Vancouver, BC
Emily Carr University of Art + Design
This spring visual artists from across Canada will meet in Vancouver for CARFAC National’s annual conference, Artists for Artists. Panels will cover the following topics: tools for marketing yourself to schools, reclaiming traditional knowledge for indigenous communities, how artists can benefit from the knowledge of their peers through mentorship programs, and how the Artist’s Resale Right would allow artists to share in the profits made from their work if it comes to Canada. Mix and mingle with other artists at receptions celebrating CARFAC’s 45th Anniversary and the winner of this year’s Visual Arts Advocacy Award.

Call for Nominations: CARFAC National Visual Arts Advocate Award
To coincide with the national conference in Vancouver, CARFAC seeks to honour a professional artist from British Columbia, who has made a significant contribution as an advocate for the Canadian visual arts community. This contribution may be national or regional in scope, and is a wonderful opportunity for a local arts advocate to gain national recognition and thanks for their work.
Anyone can nominate a visual artist(s) for this award by completing the nomination form and forwarding it to CARFAC National. Deadline for receipt of nominations is May 3, 2013.
