In response to Covid-19 and the current travel and gathering restrictions in place, CNMN is postponing Forum 2020: Listen up to Spring 2021. We thank all of you who have expressed your support for the event and especially those who applied to our participation travel fund. We hope to offer the same funding opportunities next year and will keep your applications on file. In the interim, we hope everyone is staying safe. We particularly appreciate all those in our communities who are working to keep us healthy, safe and provided for–both in mind and body.
The Open Call for proposals to Forum 2020: Listen up is now accepting submissions. Successful applicants will have their travel and accommodation covered: a great way to experience a CNMN Forum! For information on how to submit, click here.
The Canadian New Music Network invites members to participate in the Open Call for Proposals for Forum 2020, taking place in Regina from May 21 to 24, 2020. Find out more details about the 14th edition of CNMN’s Forum here.
Forum 2020 — Listen up — celebrates the spirit of activism and inclusion through five themes:
Access, Community, Indigenous Resurgence, Land and Technology-Innovation.
We welcome proposals for 15-minute (demo-)presentations (with a subsequent 5-minute round of questions) engaging with one of the five themes. Selected presenters will be invited to join in a group discussion with other session members and participants.
Proposals are also encouraged for 20- or 40-minute workshops engaging Forum participants in one of the five themes.
Participants whose proposals are selected will have their travel and accommodations covered, as well as the Forum fee waived. The jury for the Open Call is comprised of CNMN’s membership from across the country. Anyone working in the creation or presentation of new creative music and sound is encouraged to apply!
CNMN is growing its staff to create a small team. Open positions include an administration assistant position to support Executive Director Terri Hron and a web developer to design the Participatory Music Hub and support CNMN activities. Deadlines for both positions are November 10.
CNMN is looking to add images of works created or presented by as many members as possible for our homepage banner, which chooses randomly from our selection. If you have landscape-oriented photo(s), please send them to us with a caption that includes the names of any performers or works performed as well as the photo credit.
Since May 2019, CNMN has been working hard towards the creation of a new tool and point of connection for those creating new music and sound with non-professionals across a broad spectrum of fields and communities–the Participatory Creative Music Hub. CNMN is excited and grateful to be the recipient of a Digital Strategy Fund subsidy to help this project take off.
