Who We Are
ArtsUNITE / UNITÉ des arts strives to provide artists and creative entrepreneurs with a free, centralized, comprehensive and humanistic wayfinding service that connects people to resources in the arts. We help you find resources in funding, work, services, crisis support and learning opportunities that are curated according to artist-specific needs. We want Canadian creatives to have equitable access to resources. Adapting to the changing needs of the arts sector post-COVID-19, and with support from partners across Canada, ArtsUNITE / UNITÉ is a dynamic service, focusing on providing diverse and adaptive resources that will enable our creative communities to survive in the current moment and thrive in the long run. We’re on a mission to unite the national Canadian arts sector in a mutual goal of empowering, educating and employing Canadian artists and creatives.
Call for Content
We are currently seeking artists and writers to create and contribute website content.
What are we looking for?
ArtsUNITE is looking for content that provides resources for artists, creative entrepreneurs and the creative community. This can come in the form of blog posts, videos, TikToks, webinars and more! We are looking for original content that speaks to one of these categories:
- Personal Stories: Are you a First Generation or New Generation Canadian? We want to hear from you and your experiences. From balancing cultures, to forging an identity in a new country and sharing any advice/lessons learned with our community.
- The Future of Art in Canada: With the vaccine rollout and our transition from virtual to in-person, where do you see the future of the arts? How has the pandemic affected your creative sector and how do we get it to where we want it to be?
- Financial resources or advice: What was the first experience you had applying for a grant? Are you a master budget-keeper who could share how to run a balanced personal or business budget? If you were to go back 10 years, what financial advice would you give yourself today?
