About the opportunity
CAPACOA is a national presenting association, with a mandate for leadership in the arts and culture sector. One of CAPACOA’s priorities is to be a catalyst for Canadian organizations to engage in cultural diplomacy, in order to facilitate collaborative, reciprocal and creative relationships with counterparts in other countries.
To that end, CAPACOA has convened an International Market Development Committee to undertake targeted initiatives that will showcase Canada on world stages.
Recognizing that Canadian presenters have a front line perspective of the value and logistics of touring, CAPACOA is launching a digital exchange around key markets of interest, and position Canadian industry leaders as catalysts for collaborative exchange.
The International Market Development Initiative 2020 (IMDI2020) will explore network development in the era of COVID-19, with a view to advantageously positioning Canada in a post recovery environment. CAPACOA will facilitate relationship building beyond our borders and forward planning for live international exchange.
Application deadline (extended): August 14, 2020
