Public Art Consultation Survey

The Canadian Artists representation, or CARFAC, is pleased to announce that it will begin a consultation process to establish new payment standards and contract terms for public art projects.

Through this process, CARFAC will review current best practice standards already in place in Canada and abroad. New resources, including the development of sample requests for proposals and contract templates, as well as a new set of minimum recommended artist fees for tasks such as jury participation, proposal development, coordinating mural projects, etc. will also be created.

CARFAC says it is vitally important to develop consistent and fair guidelines that are agreed to by those working directly in the field of public art.

Experts are invited to participate in one of our three key stakeholder groups:

  • Visual artists who have participated in at least one public art commission.
  • Staff who work directly in municipal and regional public art programs.
  • Private partner agencies who facilitate or present public art projects and festivals.

The stakeholder groups will meet throughout the process and offer feedback on proposals.

CARFAC is now accepting expressions of interest for participation in the stakeholder groups.

To ensure all interested parties may participate in the process, we also welcome interested parties to participate in our survey:

For commissioners, visit public-art-survey-commissioners.
