Connection / Creation / Development / Community

March 3 - 6, 2021
Presented online by Manitoba Music, Treaty 1 Territory

Manitoba Music is launching Catalyst Music Conference, a new virtual conference focused on connection, creation, community, and professional development for the music industry in Manitoba. 

Building on the foundation of the long-running January Music Meeting, Catalyst kicks off March 3, welcoming music industry pros and music creators from around the world. Programming includes specialized and interactive training through presentations, discussion groups, and networking mixers. Catalyst offers Manitoba's music community a rare opportunity to network with and learn from a cross section of tastemakers and experts while connecting with local peers.

This edition will cover critical music topics in 2021 and concrete advice on how to succeed in the constantly-evolving music business, including: skills-building presentations, strategic planning, listening sessions with industry pros, community-focused panels on building a more equitable music industry, workshops for emerging and established music producers, and more.
