Music Industry Professionals

Music Industry Professionals Program


July 23, 2020 - March 31, 2021

The Music Industry Professionals program provides people working in the Indigenous music industry an opportunity to gain experience and build relationships.

Participants gain knowledge and strengthen skills to work as managers, promoters, agents, administrators, event organizers or presenters through a mentorship or internship.

This program supports applicants with Indigenous ancestry, which includes First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. Registered Indian Status is not required. Applicants must be a resident of B.C.

This opportunity is made possible with funding from Creative BC.

We are here to help music industry professionals!

FPCC staff are available to answer questions about grant eligibility, project proposal ideas, what activities are permitted during COVID-19 restrictions, which program or grant may be best for your project and more. You may also contact an Outreach Coach for information on project planning, resources and information sessions.
