“PHOENIX will give managers and labels the opportunity to not only learn from each other, but also from leading music industry figures and their counterparts in other creative industries,” said Alex Grigg, Executive Director Music BC.
"There are many synergies in the creative industries," said Prem Gill, CEO Creative BC. "The Phoenix Pilot Program is a partnership that will help BC talent capitalize on these synergies and opportunities across the creative sectors."
"I’m so excited about PHOENIX,” said program director Mariel Beros. “It’s inspired by a very successful series of programs I’ve run in Australia in association with the Australian Music Industry Network. In this pilot program for Music BC, my team and I are going to take the training to a whole new level.”
PHOENIX incorporates two residential workshops. The first will be held in Squamish in mid-August, and the second will mark the end of the program in late October.
