Alberta Best Practices

We would like to share with you the newly-drafted Alberta Best Practices for craft, media and visual artists. The Alberta Best Practices Project commenced in 2017, based on documents developed by CARFAC Saskatchewan. The project adapts these documents for use within Alberta’s arts ecology, and was undertaken to meet a clear need in Alberta for the establishment of Best Practices, to further professionalize and support our sector.

Best Practices are professional guidelines for interactions between artists and those individuals and organizations that work with them in a wide range of capacities. We have addressed initial key topics including contracts, fundraising, gallery relationships, juried exhibitions, and community art, and believe that Alberta craft, media, and visual artists will benefit from having these guidelines endorsed and implemented.

We value your input into these documents, and invite you to review and comment on them. Comments on these draft documents can be sent to chris@carfacalberta.com or you can join in the CARFAC Alberta engagement sessions on Saturday October 26, 2019 in Calgary, and Saturday November 2 in Edmonton. We hope to see you there!
