Emerging Artist Showcase Opportunity

Apply by September 8th, 2019

As part of Manitoba Showcase, The Manitoba Arts Network offers three emerging artists the opportunity to perform a 10-minute Showcase set alongside established musicians from Manitoba and across Canada. The three selected artists will prepare their Showcase performance with guidance from mentors who are experienced music industry professionals.

Every year, Manitoba Arts Network (MAN) brings together arts presenters and artists for Manitoba’s only province-wide arts conference, Manitoba Showcase. The conference is in a different city or town each year. This year we’re coming to Winkler, MB, from October 24-27, 2019.

Manitoba Showcase is an excellent opportunity to network with and perform for delegates from arts organizations (presenters/buyers) from across the province, as well as agents and other members of the music industry. Performances at Manitoba Showcase often result in bookings.

Three artists or groups will be selected. All genres are welcome to apply.

Artists applying to the Emerging Artist Showcase must:

  • Have a recording (demo, EP or full-length)
  • Be available to participate in Manitoba Showcase all day Friday, Oct 25 and Sat, Oct 26
  • Be a current resident of Manitoba
  • Be in the early stages of your career(s)
  • Be age 18-35, or at least one group member must be age 18-35
  • Selected emerging artists do not have to pay the conference registration fee.

MAN will also provide accommodations and some meals (meals listed here).

To apply, fill out this application form by September 8th, 2019.
