Times they are a changing...The main fundamentals for performing music artists really do not though! We are pleased to announce the Audience Building Workshop, designed for local performing artists and indie touring acts alike. The workshop will be lead by Jason Wilkinson, founder and owner of Ottawa's artist development company The Artist Alliance. The workshop will cover the basics of working with promoters as an independent artist, how to easily build a business plan for live shows, and how to set up a plan to sell tickets with the intention of selling out your show. Also, some insight into why it's important to do everything you can to make your local venues happy with your events.
