CIMA is excited to announce its inaugural CIMA Summit: Indie Music Connects series on June 22 and 23 from 12:00PM-3:00PM (EDT). This 2-day virtual summit connects CIMA members from across the country to each other, to cutting edge thought leaders, kickass keynote speakers, indie industry icons, current trends and new ways to survive and thrive in a post pandemic music industry.

Rapper/producer Cadence Weapon and his team will be on hand to launch the new CIMA program: Ask Me Anything, where members can access the advice, knowledge, and experience of indie music luminaries. So, get your questions ready!

Artists will gather ‘round for an Artist Fireside Chat about how they have adapted and pivoted to meet the challenges of the pandemic.

Indie industry pros will lead sessions on the future of music, breaking down racial barriers in the music industry, the current independent market both nationally and internationally, policy advocacy and more!

A Parliament Hill to Climb  looks at why government advocacy and policy development is crucial to the future of independent music in Canada. CIMA board members will do a deep dive into the current state of Bill C-10, copyright, and the future of CanCon.

CIMA members get the chance to tap into the insights and vision of incredible leaders of the industry who sit on their Board of Directors as well as meet their new President, Andrew Cash.

That’s six hours of programming over two days for only $25 for CIMA member companies (Note: pricing is per individual participant)!
