Who can see your viewing activity?
If we’ve already registered do we need to again? :)
Thanks, Justine. If you could e-mail again to service@the pitch.ca as well as me but I do have you on the list
Is it ONLY for Canadian artists?
Do You have an idea of the cost one it is up and running?
Inga, do you want to speak a bit about who this *is* for, and who it is *not* for? (When it comes to pilot partners?)
Is there much artist variety beyond music?
Not to get into details right away, but will the fees be commission based?
It is for all performing artists in all genres
I'll eventually have questions about the connectivity between The Pitch and other applications and knowledge bases. For example, if I am an artist and I already have a user account in I Want To Showcase, is there any way for me to import my IWTS information (including individual touring offerings) into The Pitch?
So good to hear. Thanks!
Will we be able to link listed artists to existing websites or will the artists or agencies need to submit the same information in a new format? (very labour intensive ?)
in terms of video showcase, how many videos can be posted and how long would the showcase excerpts be?
Are venues brick and mortar venues or can they be digital platforms?
For artists, can they indicate which regions they are available to tour in?
Will the platform work in reverse, as in will artists/managers be able to research presenters and their presenting spaces?
@Briana: Artists will be able to indicate the regions that they are available to tour in.
@Justine: All users will be able to look for anyone else in the ecosystem.
@lesley: there is no requirement that "presenters" run out of a brick and mortar space. Same thing for artists, they are not required to only have shows that are live and in-person.
@Margaret, so there will be a profile about the venue sizes?
@justine: yes, to start we will have some minimal and basic info about venue spaces. They will be searchable fields.
Many presenters at conventional booking conferences are pretty tight-lipped about this kind of info
Or can be!
What if an artist is looking for a digital venue. Can these be listed?
Are there any size requirements for venues? Or are smaller community venues / non-traditional venues able to be listed on the system?
@Briana There are no size requirements. You can be a 50-person space that is used as a performance space, and it can be listed on the platform.
*50-person unconventional space
@Justine: CAPACOA is launching the second phase of a project in which we will develop a searchable directory of presenters. This information will also be stored into the Artsdata knowledge graph so it can easily be reused by other applications such as The Pitch. We will soon be reaching out to agents and managers to validate your information needs.
Great to hear this @Frederic!
If I am not mistaken, Small World Music is also compiling a database of world music presenters..are you all in touch with them.
Fantastic news @Frederic!
It would be interesting to reduce manual entry in the Pitch by connecting with resources that provide basic information about venues, organizations etc that are part of the performing arts network - so fields can be repopulated with public information.
@Margaret that is great, thanks
@Marilyn: Thanks for flagging this particular initiative. I will connect with Umair.
Caitlin, ease of onboarding is def in the planning.
Re my comment: resources like Artsdata as it evolves
Great to hear @debbie
@Paul, to your original question: "in terms of video showcase, how many videos can be posted and how long would the showcase excerpts be?"I hope this slide answers your questions some what! Please follow up with more questions of you have any.
full length option is very important for dance
for updates and guides, keep an eye on thepitch.ca

So for artists, where should they go? To the website?
Jai, yes to the website for info
Is there a newsletter that is distributed to participants?
no newsletter @Robert - the website will have the most current info on it.

Got to get to my next meeting! THANK YOU.
Curious if a manager/agent will be able to invite non-subscribing presenters to see a showcase.
If a manager or agent upload their roster, do their listings stay up for a limited period of time?
@Robert your roster consists of individual profiles for each artist. They exists on the platform for as long as they are not removed.
@margaret thanks for that
for an agency, we will need separate search tags and geography fields for each artist
@sandra Correct. There will be separate search fields for your agency profile, and each of the specific artist profiles.
Can I book Nina Simone?
Sorry I just signed her yesterday
LOL as well
presenters/venues tend to get swamped by artists requests fro what I understand which means they can’t reply to artists often. When Artists are trying to build a tour for example and contacting venue would there be a quick “i’m interested” reply and a thanks but no thanks reply in order to avoid overload?
@Marilyn - you’re too fast for me..
@Paul - yes there is a way for interest to be expressed
(Watch that video later for some good music)
What does that number refer to?
@Justine, number is just an example, not referencing anything
But how is that used?
Thanks so much Inga and Debbie, very informative - you have come quite away since our first chats.
So the notes are public on the platform?
This looks totally wonderful
This is great, nice work!
If you have documentation on your data model that you would be willing to share, I would very much like to be have a copy of it. You've clearly done significant research on your users needs and your data model will be a testimony of these information needs.
Very exciting. Thanks for this session!
When will the video guides be available?
I appreciate all of your hard work
Great work! Thank you.
I think artists are interested. Do you think presenters will be as much?
Great work! Looking forward to seeing it unfold.
Well done! Looking forward to jumping in!
Thanks for your continued work on this!
