In response to COVID-19’s impact on Canada’s live music industry, the National Arts Centre (NAC) has partnered with Facebook Canada to offer artists the opportunity to apply for $1000 grants to host their own concert livestreams. The grant is open to artists in any discipline to host a livestream of 45 to 60 minutes in length.
To apply, artists or groups with less than 10 members can submit their name, a description of their performance, the date and the name of the streaming platform they plan to use. Artists can email their applications to CanadaPerforms@nac-cna.ca.
