Unison Live Workers Fund

July 05, 2022

Indigenous Live Music Workers are invited to apply for the UNISON Live Workers Fund.

The Government of Canada recently announced the Unison Fund as a recipient of the Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund. Unison provides financial and mental health assistance and will use this funding to help live music professionals via their new funding stream, the Live Music Workers Fund.

The International Indigenous Music Summit and the Unison Fund are proud to support each other to help Indigenous artists and live music workers (in music industry spaces) with financial support following the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes folks who are: music artists (singer/songwriters), and those affiliated with performers (such as: booking agents, composers, producers, and more).
