C Magazine’s mandate is to advance education in contemporary visual art and culture by providing readers with access to important issues and ideas. Our readers are primarily university-educated art professionals, educators and students in visual arts and culture. For many of them, C Magazine has played an important role in their studies and in the development of their careers. C strives to offer programs that enhance our readers’ learning experiences and provide opportunities for development to writers and artists.

C Writer in Residence
The Writer in Residence program gives writers engaged in art criticism the opportunity to become closely involved with C Magazine on an in-depth level, as well as a place to grow and develop their writing practice. During their term at C the Writer in Residence proposes and develops an original piece of writing to be published in a forthcoming issue of the magazine or on the website. This new work may be inspired by research undertaken in C’s archives, or by engaging with its day-to-day activities.
