CARFAC Ontario says
The Board of Directors of CARFAC Ontario is pleased to invite their fellow members to this year’s Annual General Meeting on the afternoon of Sunday, September 25. Please visit the Eventbrite for more details: http://carfacontarioagm2016.eventbrite.ca

This year's AGM will coincide with our Draw More Income Panel. This panel discussion (which is FREE for members and $10 for non-members) following the AGM will focus on the range of revenue streams in which successful artists in today's artistic landscape draw their income. We hope to enable artists to learn from each other through shared stories of success, failure, and innovation.

We are pleased to be able to bring this topic—which was also the theme of the 2016 CARFAC National AGM—to the attention of artists in Ontario. Our Draw More Income Panel promises to be an interesting and important discussion specifically geared towards practicing artists looking to diversify their income stream.

PLEASE NOTE: The AGM is only open to CARFAC Ontario Members. Non-Members wishing to attend the panel are asked to arrive for 3:30PM.
