Due to the extended stay-at-home order in Ontario, it is still not clear when the province will be able to open back up yet. In light of that, we're sad to say that the Youth Showcase Concert Series will not be running this year. We know that it has been a difficult time for musicians, and we encourage you to check out the following resources for support.

Resources:
   •    Unison Benevolent Fund's COVID-19 Relief Program
   •    Ontario Arts Council Grants
   •    Toronto Arts Council Grants
   •    CBC Creative Relief Fund
   •    RBC Emerging Artists Project
   •    FACTOR
   •    SOCAN Foundation

As we continue to navigate this uncertain situation together, the Youth Showcase Concert Series has decided to move our festival online this year in order to adhere to social distancing regulations that are likely to continue in August. Due to this, we will now be accepting applications from artists and bands under the age of 25 from across Canada. If selected, you will be asked to submit a 15-minute performance of your set which will be posted on our website and social media platforms. Additionally, we will have Instagram live takeovers and other live events every Saturday in August. For more information, please visit our website or contact us at youthshowcaseconcert@gmail.com.
