SaskMusic's International Women's Day Events

Presented in celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, SaskMusic / Women in Music Saskatchewan very proudly presents two panels.

These will be held online via Zoom. Free registration is available at the links below.

Sunday March 13, 2-3pm CST

A panel discussion with working artists/industry professionals and their approaches to balancing the demands of working in the music industry, finding creative fulfilment, maintaining family/personal passions, and coming out the other side of the pandemic. The idea of ‘having it all,’ while appealing, can create excessive pressure – especially on creatives. Is there a way to hit upon all of our most important needs, without burning out? Let’s discuss.

Register in advance for this webinar:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Tuesday March 15, 7-8pm CST

This discussion will explore our panelists' roles in the music industry, how they got started, and some of their challenges and successes along the way. This will be an interactive, ask-me-anything-style panel. Bring your questions!

This will be a hybrid session - you can attend in person in Regina or through Zoom.

SaskMusic Live Crew Support Fund
Submission Deadline: March 20, 2022 midnight CST

SaskMusic recognizes that artists, venues, and the music industry at large made difficult decisions to postpone or cancel concerts, events, and provision of music industry services over the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the live music sector is yet to fully resume its normal activity. This fund specifically recognizes that many live event support workers were left underemployed for a significant amount of time during the pandemic, and that these circumstances have caused financial and emotional strain on many industry personnel.

This relief fund is intended to provide a one-time allocation to approved applicants who, prior to the pandemic, were employed / self-employed as support crew for live music events.

This fund is not intended to replace an individual’s lost income, but to contribute towards alleviating the financial stress on impacted individuals. We anticipate that the demand for this fund will exceed its available resources, in which case not every applicant will be approved for support. Please do not let that discourage you from applying.

Bill C-11: What's at Stake for the Cultural Community in Saskatchewan?

On February 2, the Minister of Canadian Heritage, Pablo Rodriguez, introduced Bill C-11 to modernize the Broadcasting Act. With C-11, Canada's ambition is to subject large online broadcasting companies to the same requirements for funding and showcasing local and national cultural expressions as traditional broadcasters.

What are the issues underlying this bill? Why is it essential for the cultural community? How can it help our artists, creators and cultural professionals?

The CDCE and Saskatchewan Arts Alliance invite the entire Saskatchewan cultural community - artists, creators, producers, distributors, broadcasters and publishers in the book, film, television, music, performing and visual arts sectors, public and private sector cultural professionals, and civil society organizations - to attend a regional meeting on Bill C-11.
