Artists Under 25

Calling all artists, 24 years of age and younger!

 

It is in our organization's mission to help support and promote emerging artists build their careers, and we know that young aspiring artists have a particularity hard time, especially regarding the additional challenge of affordability. So we would like to help ease that pressure by offering all Canadian visual artists under the age of 25 a complimentary membership with the Federation of Canadian Artists.   

 

"Free membership" applies to all membership levels - Supporting, Active, Associate (AFCA) and Senior (SFCA).  However, all regular standards and rules do apply.  Each "Under 25" member must go through the same jurying process that paying members undergo.  Jurying of work is required to advance to Active status and beyond, and "Under 25" members will be held to the same national-level quality standards that all of our members are held to. 

 

In order to offer this speciality service to "Under 25" artists, we have had to cut back on the expenses the FCA normally incurs when a new member is acquired. For example, "Under 25" members will not receive a physical mailed copy of our periodical Art Avenue, instead they will receive a PDF via email.

 

Costs associated with entering calls for exhibitions and taking workshops still apply, but all are optional, additional services offered to members.

 

Interested in joining? Download and complete the application form (see below - the form is fillable on screen.  Disregard the "Payment" section).  Once complete, email the form to membership@artists.ca with a copy of your government-issued ID.  Be sure to include your date of birth on the copy of ID.  Once we receive your application, we will create your account and register you for the maximum number of free years you qualify for.  When you reach the age of 25, you account will revert to a standard account and to continue you will need to pay for your annual membership.  You can cancel your membership at any time by sending us an email or calling the office.  There are no strings attached to this complimentary service, all we hope to achieve is the ability to create more opportunities for more artists, regardless of age.
