Support Letter & Getting to Ottawa

Getting to Ottawa

You’re mak­ing the trip to Ottawa, Cana­da this Jan­u­ary to attend FORUM 2016? Now that’s a great idea!

Our past 6 nation­al FORUMs were very excit­ing and suc­cess­ful, and the project has proven to be a great way to strength­en ties with peo­ple in the new music field from coast to coast, to make con­nec­tions, to exchange new ideas and to get new projects off the ground.

Here are a few hints and tips so you don’t break the pig­gy bank:

  • There are good air­fare rates in Jan­u­ary. You’d be sur­prised what is out there! Get them before they go up in price.
  • For those who have resources to apply to their orga­ni­za­tion, insti­tu­tion or uni­ver­si­ty for trav­el or pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment sup­port, we hope you choose FORUM 2016 for one of these appli­ca­tions. We can pro­vide the nec­es­sary let­ter of sup­port for your appli­ca­tion – see below.
  • You may be eli­gi­ble for trav­el fund­ing from your region­al or provin­cial arts coun­cil. Don’t be afraid to call them up and ask! Act quick­ly to be sure you will meet deadlines.
  • You may be eli­gi­ble for a trav­el grant from the Equi­ty Office at the Cana­da Coun­cil. It is for Cana­di­an pro­fes­sion­al artists or arts pro­fes­sion­als with dis­abil­i­ties or who are from cul­tur­al­ly diverse groups (African, Asian, Lati­nAmer­i­can, Mid­dle East­ern or mixed racial descent).
