Forum 2020: Participant Travel and Expense Support

Are you interested in CNMN Forum 2020: Listen up in Regina, May 21-24?

Would you like to participate, but cannot afford travel costs and related expenses?

The Canadian New Music Network understands that musicians working in creative new music and experimental practices often experience financial precarity and maintain themselves with limited means. For the first time, we are able to offer financial aid to a limited number of Forum participants. CNMN will consider airfare, train and/or vehicle travel expenses within Canada, and will cover on-site accommodations, per diem, and registration fee at Forum 2020. Please note: due to limited resources, we may only be able to provide partial funding.

To apply, please complete the following in one PDF document:

  1. Provide your name and city/town/area of residence.
  2. Tell us why you wish to attend Forum 2020. (Max. 300 words)
  3. Describe the financial support you require, including an estimate of your total travel costs. (Max. 200 words)
  4. Include your artistic bio (or a description of your practice and/or role in the arts sector). (Max. 200 words)
