ATTN: Historical & Critical Studies Students. View on Canadian Art is recruiting contributors

Historical and Critical Studies was interested in getting the following distributed to NSCAD students. Below is a copy of the original email:

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself - I'm a Toronto-based art writer and publisher of View on Canadian Art (VoCA), a blog on contemporary art in Canada.

I am presently in the process of expanding VoCA into an in-depth, cross-Canada online magazine on the visual arts.

VoCA will be recruiting regular contributors from cities across Canada, and I’d like to know whom to speak with about about the possibility of involving students at NSCAD.

In return for contributing to VoCA, students will receive a by-line, online bio and significant national and international exposure. Additionally, VoCA will archive articles indefinitely online.

Writing on contemporary art gives students a chance to broaden their outlook, develop a critical mindset vis a vis their own work (and that of others) and to become immersed in their local art community.

Please see http://www.viewoncanadianart.blogspot.com/ for more information. The full VoCA website is presently in beta – it should be up and running in the next few months.
