A Fine FACTA 2025 Call for Papers

Updated: Jun 1

2025 Call for Papers (DUE DATE: October 31, 2024)


Journal of the Fine Arts Council

The Alberta Teachers Association

Theme: Building and Growing Community

Community is such an integral aspect of the Fine Arts. For our 2025 issues of A Fine Facta, we will be exploring what does it mean or look like to belong in community within the Fine Arts? How do we build and grow our communities and how do we ensure that there is a meaningful space for everyone? In what ways do we advocate for or promote the Fine Arts community?

We will be offering two publishing opportunities to submit articles, papers, etc.

  • Our first journal will be focused on practical application (what are you doing). For this issue, we are looking specifically for lesson plans, book reviews, and overviews of what you are doing in your classroom.

  • Our second issue will be focused on how we are thinking about regarding building, growing, and/or advocating for the arts community. We invite scholarly articles, opinion pieces, and big picture ideas for this issue. There is an opportunity to have your manuscripts peer-reviewed for this issue.

Due Date: October 31, 2024
