Join us for a digital info session with FACTOR!
Whether you're a seasoned FACTOR (The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings) applicant, or applying for the first time, this will act as a great introduction or refresher to their online portal and application processes! Note the upcoming deadlines of May 28 for their Artist Development and Juried Sound Recording streams.
In this 90 minute session, FACTOR will walk us through a general overview of their operations, take a digital walk-through of their online portal, check out an artist development application and have plenty of time for questions! If you create your artist and applicant profile now, we'll walk through the process of what's needed for an artist development grant during the webinar and you'll be able to pull up your own profile and follow along. Free for SaskMusic members!

SOCAN Launches Encore!, A Program That Compensates Online Concerts
Music lovers across the country and social media platforms have benefitted from the generosity of Canada’s music creators since the start of the COVID-19 crisis with live online concerts on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram.
SOCAN is now reciprocating the love by launching Encore!, a program that compensates music creators and publishers for their invaluable work. Encore! will ease the financial burden on SOCAN writer members and their publishers created by the pandemic. A total of approximately $200,000 is available each quarter for the program for the duration of the COVID-19 lockdown in Canada. Each online concert will be eligible for a total payment of $150, with shares of royalties going to all rights holders of the music performed.
