EVENT 1  -  ONTARIO CONTACT

-SHOWCASE & CONFERENCE

Petrolia, Ontario

November. 10 and 11, 2017

By special arrangement, ZOOM!  participants are invited to attend ONTARIO CONTACT.  We will watch a wide variety of professional artists in action, and learn what it means to ‘showcase’ your art and plan a tour.  You’ll also meet the ‘arts buyers’ who represent theatres across the province.  This is a rare and exclusive opportunity to experience one of Canada’s largest professional networking and showcasing conferences for artists and arts buyers.

 

Event Manager Cheryl Ewing said  “We’re excited to welcome the delegates from Ovation! and ZOOM! back.  This is a great, long-term partnership for both organizations.  Feedback on the program, from the artists and arts buyers, in past years has been tremendous!  We love working with the next generation!

 

 Bonnie Craig, Academy Director of Ovation! said “My long history with Ontario Contact has been rewarding on many levels and I’m thrilled to be able to introduce our students and other emerging artists to this ‘real-world’  program!  For anyone who loves the arts and may be aiming for a career in the industry, this is a golden moment that will help launch your journey!”

 

* Families/students are responsible for their own travel, meals and accommodation costs and logistics at this event – details will be provided in October.  Ask us for details!

“Watching all these amazing artists was unbelievable! And meeting all the industry people was fantastic too!  I honestly didn’t know about any of this before!  Thank you so much!” (ZOOM! participant 2014-15)
