The JUNO Awards

At a recent joint announcement with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the 2018 Vancouver JUNO Host Committee announced several initiatives that will be rolling out in the months leading up to JUNO Week – March 19 to March 25, 2018

Vancouver hosting the JUNO Awards is truly a perfect example of the energy, excitement and opportunity that exists in the city and province within the creative community — and as a musical epicentre of Canada.

“We are so proud that Vancouver has been chosen to host the JUNO Awards for the fourth time, and the local committee is committed to the delivery of JUNO activities that will support the amplification of British Columbia’s vibrant and diverse music scene,” says 2018 Host Committee Co-Chair Catherine Runnals.

As part of the BC Artist Showcase, the Committee also announced an inaugural micro-grant program for province-wide initiatives that fit within the scope of the BC Artist Showcase.

With $25,000 in available grant funding, recipients will receive up to a maximum of $1,000 per application to support musical programming and events in their community running from January to March, 2018. Applications will be available online via both 2018 Host Committee and MusicBC through December 31, 2017.

“We hope that through these micro-grants, we can extend our reach and support more of the amazing talent that this province has to offer,” shared 2018 Host Committee Co-Chair Nick Blasko.

British Columbia, you have a vibrant and diverse music scene, so let’s hear it!
