CARFAC Ontario is offering you the chance to win fantastic
prizes when you join or renew your membership!

CARFAC Ontario is the principal advocate for the rights of visual and media artists in this province. If there is an issue affecting artists in Ontario, or one that will impact upon the economic and social welfare of artists, we will make sure that the needs and rights of our members and all Ontario artists are adequately represented. If you have ever received an exhibition fee for a public gallery exhibition, you have already received the benefits of the work of CARFAC. Your membership helps us to continue being a voice for you at both provincial and national levels.

Here's your chance to get lucky! Join or renew today!
