Cape Breton Music Industry Cooperative to Administer Music Export Fund
The Cape Breton Music Industry Co-operative (CBMIC) is pleased to again offer the Cape Breton International Music Export Fund. This fund will benefit Cape Breton based musicians by providing financial support to artists who are pursing career opportunities internationally.
”Our organization is delighted to be able to offer this program again. With the help of the International Music Export Program, Cape Breton artists and groups are succeeding in growing new international markets and seeking out new export opportunities. In fact in our most recent program, which finished up last fiscal year, we saw nearly a 300% rise in successful applications over the previous year with thirteen new applicants to the program”
Jennifer Currie, CBMIC Board Chair
The total cost of this project is $82,500 and Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC) has provided an investment of $61,500. The Cape Breton Music Export Program will provide up to 65% of the total project budget up to a maximum of $7500.
There is no deadline for applications and projects will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis until all funds have been exhausted. All applications for funding will be assessed by a jury of music industry professionals as appointed by CBMIC’s board of directors.
