With my job, I talk to a lot of independent musicians on a regular basis and I’ve found over the years that many of them don’t realize what an incredible resource their provincial and territorial Music Industry Associations are. MIAs can provide musicians and music industry professionals with funding opportunities and they also provide things like educational workshops and are a hub of information and connections.
Joining me on the show today is Kentya Kurban who is the Community Engagement Coordinator at Music BC. Kentya is a soul artist and community champion with over five years’ experience in music administration, event planning and production. She joined Music BC team over a year ago and has proved to be a great addition to the team!
