We are thrilled to announce that BIPOC Voices recently won 2 grants from the Canada Council for the Arts for a total of $105,000. We will be using this money to support the following projects:
* Create fully-subsidized demo recordings of work by BIPOC composers, to support them in pitching their work to orchestras, opera companies, and other arts organizations. These recordings will also help programmers using the BIPOC Voices database. More info here!
* Build a fully functional database of works by BIPOC composers (https://morebipocvoices.com/all-works) , moving it out of Airtable and onto a more flexible, custom-built platform.
* Increase the size of our catalogue of works by BIPOC composers
We are thrilled to have this opportunity to grow, and take bold supportive action on behalf of BIPOC composers and musicians. Thank-you so much for your support thus far!
At the moment, we are looking to connect with BIPOC composers that could benefit from our fully-subsidized demo recording project. Anyone interested in this service can submit their work to our database to be automatically considered. Please do help us spread the word.
