Touring Network Committee Report — October 2017

TouringImageThe Tour­ing Net­work Com­mit­tee met once dur­ing 2016–17, begin­ning the process of devel­op­ing a mis­sion for the com­mit­tee. To this end we strived to answer ques­tions posed by the board such as: How can we devel­op a nation­al audi­ence for con­tem­po­rary music? How can we cre­ate and ensure the man­age­ment of a new music tour­ing infor­ma­tion resource? And, how can we sup­port a tour­ing cir­cuit of new music that is built around project exchanges and reci­procity instead of just “mak­ing the rounds”?

The com­mit­tee dis­cussed the need for fur­ther mis­sion devel­op­ment such as sur­vey­ing both pre­sen­ters and artists to learn what their needs are, and how CNMN can play a role in mak­ing tour­ing of con­tem­po­rary music in Cana­da eas­i­er for all parties.

This will be an inter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tion that needs input from the whole range of Cana­di­an new music prac­ti­tion­ers. We hope that some of you would like to join in! Con­tact Norm Adams.
