Community Futures looking for Aboriginal artists

Community Futures Development Corporation looking for Aboriginal artists

Community Futures Development Corporation of Central Interior First Nations (CFDC of CIFN) is seeking aboriginal artisans in B.C. to take part in the fourth edition of the Aboriginal Artisans catalogue.

“Art is a vital component to not only Aboriginal culture, but also Canadian culture as a whole,” said Geri Collins, director of operations.  “We want to give our artists the opportunities they deserve.”

There is no charge to be included in the catalogue and both traditional and contemporary artists are encouraged to submit a biography, artist’s statement and high quality photos of the work they wish to have included in the catalogue.

Funding for the project is through a co-operative effort between the First Nations Technology Council, Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) and CFDC of CIFN.
