Publicity, media, and fan engagement are key to cutting through the noise and having a successful music career. Media coverage and social media influencers help artists and companies grow their fan base, offer a sense of legitimacy, and connect people to the story behind the music. It is crucial for musicians to know what their story is and understand how to present it to the media. Apart from the story itself, what other assets should be in place for a successful publicity campaign? In this workshop we'll discuss how to create an engaging story and professionally present an artist or music business to the media. Presented by Polaris Music Prize & Manitoba Music
