Call For Artists


October 2019

reachAbility Association (rA) in partnership with the Bluenose Ability Arts and Film Festival (BAAFF) is putting a call out to all artists who would like to collaborate on an innovative new project!

We are looking for talented artists from the disability arts community to provide impactful illustrations for an exciting new book that our rA team is creating in honour of reachAbility’s 20 years of service to the community. Each artist selected would be responsible for illustrating at least one subject relating to inclusion.

If you are an artist residing in Nova Scotia - or from Nova Scotia - who identifies as having a disability (sensory, physical, cognitive, mental-health or invisible disability) or if you are an artist whose subject matter relates, we want to hear from you! 

All artists chosen to participate will be compensated (paid) for participating, will be featured at the book launch during National AccessAbility Week, and will see their work published in both an e-book & a hard-copy format in May 2020. Submission deadline November 15, 2019.
