The pandemic has been brutally hard on musicians, depriving them of live performance opportunities – a primary source of revenue and connecting with their audiences. A Covid-19 relief measure, the Create and Connect Fund, to help local musicians re-connect with, and grow their audiences is being administered by Centre In The Square and the City of Kitchener’s Film, Music, and Interactive Media Office.
Fourteen grants of $1,000 each will be awarded to local musicians with the best ideas and most creative plans for creating music and connecting with their audiences. If you’re thinking of producing a song, creating a livestream, creating a music video, getting new photos for your band, anything that will help move your career forward; this is for you!
