MNB Launches New  INDUSTRY PATHWAYS Program

INDUSTRY PATHWAYS is dual-focused initiative that will provide support to New Brunswick live music workers for training, mentorship and skill development.

This project has been made possible by the Government of Canada. Those requiring accessibility accommodations in order to apply can email penelope@musicnb.org to discuss possible support. 

INDUSTRY PATHWAYS has two components aimed at the live music sector, set to begin run until March 2023. Artists, venues, festivals, and current or aspiring live music workers can access support through in two ways:

INTERNSHIP COMPONENT (DEADLINE: 28 NOV)

This component provides wage stipends to individuals and organizations for 12-week internships in which the individuals receive specialized training and work experience in the live music sector. Deadline to apply: 28 NOV 2022.
 

EXPERT ACCESS COMPONENT 

The Industry Pathways II: Expert Access Component provides access to advice, mentorship and services from nationally recognized professionals. These are bookable hours that will allow the participant to ask personalized questions and advice about their business, gain assistance with specialized tasks, and receive services at no cost. Participants can book up to five hours with the professional of their choosing. These hours may be split into several sessions with the same provider, if needed. NOTE: Participants may apply and be approved more than once, as the budget allows, but may only have two applications open at a time.

MNB lance le nouveau programme VOIES DE L'INDUSTRIE

VOIES DE L'INDUSTRIE est une initiative à double objectif qui offrira un soutien aux travailleurs·euses du secteur des spectacles musicaux du Nouveau-Brunswick en matière de formation, de mentorat et de développement des compétences.

Ce projet a été rendu possible grâce au gouvernement du Canada. Les personnes qui ont besoin de mesures d'accessibilité pour présenter une demande peuvent envoyer un courriel à penelope@musicnb.org pour discuter des possibilités de soutien. 

VOLET DE STAGES  
(DATE LIMITE: 28 NOV)

Ce volet offre des allocations salariales aux individus et aux organisations pour des stages de 12 semaines au cours desquels les individus reçoivent une formation spécialisée et une expérience professionnelle dans le secteur du spectacle musical. Date limite pour soumettre une demande: 28 NOV 2022.

VOLET D'ACCÈS AUX EXPERT·ES

Le programme Voies de l’industrie: Volet d’accès aux expert·es donne accès aux conseils, au mentorat et aux services de professionnel·es reconnu·es à l'échelle nationale. Il s'agit d'heures réservables qui permettront aux participant·es de poser des questions et de recevoir des conseils personnalisés sur leur entreprise, d'obtenir de l'aide pour des tâches spécialisées et de bénéficier de services sans frais. Les participant·es peuvent réserver jusqu'à cinq heures avec le·la professionnel·le de leur choix. Ces heures peuvent être divisées en plusieurs sessions avec le·la même fournisseur·euse, si nécessaire. À NOTER : Les participant·es peuvent présenter plus qu’une demande et être approuvés plus d'une fois, dans la mesure où le budget le permet, mais les participant·es ne peuvent avoir que deux demandes ouvertes à la fois.

A SAFER MUSIC INDUSTRY

Music·Musique NB is dedicated to fostering a safer New Brunswick music industry, where everyone is free of harassment, abuse and discrimination.

Our industry needs to be safer and inclusive for all. We have a collective responsibility to neither ignore nor tolerate abusive actions or words.

We, at Music•Musique NB, take this responsibility seriously. We are diligent about educating ourselves and our members on this issue. We do not tolerate unprofessional behaviours in our workplace, be it at a desk or on the stage.

We are also aware of our own powerlessness. Our industry doesn't have an HR department ready to investigate and intervene when there is a problem. Artists and industry professionals work in a variety of spaces, each operating independently. They are self-employed, and rely on word-of-mouth and the community’s good will to keep doing business. We are frustrated that we don't have the resources or the authority to ensure that our music industry is a source of joy and connections for all.

So, we can't fix everything right now, but that doesn't mean there is no next step. We have created an online form to document reports, complaints and witness accounts. While that is not enough on its own, we will continue working on making the NB music industry a safer and more respectful space.

UNE INDUSTRIE MUSICALE PLUS SÉCURITAIRE

Music·Musique NB est dévoué à la promotion d’une industrie de la musique néo-brunswickoise plus saine, où touxes sont à l’abri du harcèlement, des abus et de la discrimination.

Notre industrie se doit d’être plus sécuritaire et inclusive pour touxes. Nous avons une responsabilité collective de ni ignorer ni tolérer les actions ou les paroles abusives.

Nous prenons cette responsabilité au sérieux. Nous veillons à rester éduqué.es et à éduquer nos membres sur ce problème. Nous ne tolérons pas les comportements non professionnels dans notre propre milieu de travail, que ce soit à un bureau ou sur la scène.

Nous sommes également conscients de notre impuissance. Notre secteur ne dispose pas d'un département des ressources humaines prêt à enquêter et à intervenir en cas de problème. Les artistes et les professionnel.les du secteur oeuvrent dans des espaces divers, chacun fonctionnant de manière distincte. Iels sont des travailleur.euses indépendant.es, et comptent sur le bouche-à-oreille et la bonne volonté de la communauté pour continuer à faire des affaires. Nous sommes frustré.es de ne pas avoir les ressources ou l'autorité nécessaires pour garantir que notre industrie musicale soit une source de joie et de connexions pour touxes.

Nous ne pouvons donc pas tout régler tout de suite, mais cela ne signifie pas qu'il n'y a pas de prochaine étape. Nous avons créé un formulaire en ligne pour documenter les rapports, les plaintes et les témoignages. Bien que cela ne soit pas suffisant en soi, nous continuerons à travailler pour faire de l'industrie de la musique du Nouveau-Brunswick un espace plus sûr et plus respectueux.

Keegan & The Vandalorians share “Trophy Wife”

Fredericton-based trio Keegan & The Vandalorians share “Trophy Wife” ahead of the release of their debut album, The Middle Of The Day. “‘Trophy Wife’ compares the idea of being a performer to being someone whose main source of value comes from their physical appearance,” said songwriter Keegan Dobbelsteyn (he/him). “The song depicts the darker side of that deal, when the performer isn’t performing and a sense of declining personal value settles in.”
