Connexion ARC remunerates artists based on the CARFAC fee schedule for artistic production. Support for travel, lodging, or meal assistance may be available, depending on available funds at the time of application. Please note that Connexion ARC operates without a fixed location. In your application, please consider the context of the community, and activating new spaces for contemporary and experimental visual art practices, by working outside of traditional exhibition strategies.
The Programming and Selections Committees are comprised of dedicated volunteers from the artistic and situated community. Outside of current calls, expect a several month-long wait time for a response from the programming committee.
