Through the two-day workshop, the BC Touring Council aims to increase opportunities for artists 18 to 34 years old who have mastered the basic techniques of their art form and want to learn more on their way to a professional career. Agents, managers and other industry professionals are also welcome to expand their touring knowledge.

Workshop sessions include tour planning, attending industry and contact events, career and financial management, marketing and promotion, applying to showcases, and more.

Pitch & Perform: Participants are invited to participate in five-minute Pitch/Perform sessions and receive feedback from trainers. Often featured at industry events, Pitch/Performs offer an opportunity to showcase their talent to buyers.
