The Artist's Journal - complimentary issue and a request for your support.

Artist Journal

The Artist’s Journal has been in publication since 1997. Over the years, it has become known to many Arts Councils, art groups, and organizations. The Artist's Journal is on their "media mailing list" and receives their news regularly. This makes The Artist’s Journal the most concentrated source of Calls for Entry in BC and a valuable source for artists who paint or draw. They can spend less time seeking places to exhibit their work and more time at their easels.

If you paint or draw and want to sell your work, subscribe here!

Indigenous artists in BC working in all disciplines

Indigenous artists in BC working in all disciplines—visual arts, music, dance, theatre, storytelling and more—are invited to apply to take part in the Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition, a learning series designed to identify the complex relationship between education and decolonization through the perspectives of Indigenous artists.

This event is presented by ArtStarts in Schools, a charitable organization that seeks to expand the role of arts in education for the benefit of BC’s young people. For this learning series, ArtStarts has partnered with IndigenEYEZ, a creative facilitation organization with a focus on strengthening four essential relationships—with self, with others, with nature and with culture—through an Indigenous lens.

The cost for artists selected to participate is fully subsidized, covering tuition, program materials and lunch. A limited number of travel and accommodation grants are also available. This opportunity is made possible through funding support from BC Arts Council and the Government of British Columbia's Creative Futures program.

You can learn more at http://artstarts.com/aill-indigenous or get in touch with Elfred Matining, Program Manager, at 604-336-0626 ext 106 or infusion@artstarts.com
