1 in every 116 Canadian workers is an artist. The country greatly benefits socially, culturally, and economically from the collective output of its artists.  Yet, as self-employed individuals, many artists are not eligible for government income support programs, leaving them vulnerable. Canin Cultural Council and Artists & Artisans Development have partnered to launch SOCA - Support our Canadian Artists, a fundraising initiative that will allow artists severely impacted by the cancellation of performances and productions, the closure of venues, and the loss of teaching opportunities to continue earning an income while creating works of art.



The Artist Diary is a list of very talented individuals such as musicians, photographers, painters, illustrators, videographers, and more! Each artist will be featured in the diary and will highlight a list of their accomplishments, the work that they have published and a detailed description of themselves. It is so important to continue to connect with people and share different talents with one another! If you would like to be featured in the Artist diary, please head to our contact page and insert your name, email, phone number and address. Or fill out our artist helpline form down below!
