National Arts Centre - Canada Performs
“#CanadaPerforms is a $600,000 short-term relief fund that pays Canadian artists for their online performances. It was launched by Facebook Canada and the National Arts Centre to help ease the financial strain for Canadian artists impacted by the closure of performance venues across Canada related to COVID-19, and to lift the spirits of Canadians during the crisis. Artists who are selected will receive $1,000 and their online performance will be announced and listed on the NAC’s Facebook page.” Visit the National Art Centre’s website for more information.
Ottawa Live Music Streams!
This Facebook group was created during the pandemic “as a virtual venue to showcase our region’s musical talent.” There are live streams, and announcements of upcoming live stream performances, of artists from the National Capital Region. To tune in, visit facebook.com/groups/ ottawalivemusicstreams.
