As of January 2017, the Government of Canada has increased the annual allocation to Export activities, including international tours and showcases under the New Musical Works program, and Export showcases under the Collective Initiatives program for this and next fiscal year.
For those eligible artists and their representatives who are planning tours and showcases outside of Canada in the winter of 2017 or the early spring, additional funding may be available to assist you. If you are interested, please contact your Project Coordinator immediately.
For those organizations who have committed to or are developing Export Showcases in the winter or early spring of 2017 and are eligible to apply for Collective Initiatives support, you can contact Evelyn Cream, the Collective Initiatives manager at FACTOR as soon as possible. Please consult the component guidelines for Showcase Production for Export-Ready Artists for further information.
