Over the past 20 years or so, I’ve kept in touch with an organization called CARFAC. Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC) is incorporated federally as a non-profit corporation that is the national voice of Canada’s professional visual artists. As a non-profit association and a National Art Service Organization, their mandate is to promote the visual arts in Canada, to promote a socio-economic climate that is conducive to the production of visual arts in Canada, and to conduct research and engage in public education for these purposes. I like the work they do, they have a great toolkit with contract samples, samples of various agreements, and plenty of updated information on artist rights in Canada. I have continued to stay in touch and am looking forward to finding ways Aboriginal artists can benefit from their experience and expertise in navigating the commercial arts industry.
