If we’ve already registered do we need to again? :)
Debbie Peters
25:08
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
Barbara Scales
29:55
Is it ONLY for Canadian artists?
Barbara Scales
30:11
Do You have an idea of the cost one it is up and running?
Briana Doyle
30:54
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?)
Neil Scott
31:26
Is there much artist variety beyond music?
Paul Destrooper
31:33
Not to get into details right away, but will the fees be commission based?
Margot Holmes
32:12
It is for all performing artists in all genres
Frédéric Julien
32:52
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?
Neil Scott
34:32
So good to hear. Thanks!
Barbara Scales
34:46
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 ?)
Paul Destrooper
34:49
in terms of video showcase, how many videos can be posted and how long would the showcase excerpts be?
Lesley Klassen
34:53
Are venues brick and mortar venues or can they be digital platforms?
Briana Doyle
35:20
For artists, can they indicate which regions they are available to tour in?
Justine Murdy
35:44
Will the platform work in reverse, as in will artists/managers be able to research presenters and their presenting spaces?
Margaret
36:25
@Briana: Artists will be able to indicate the regions that they are available to tour in.
Briana Doyle
36:32
Thanks Margaret!
Margaret
36:45
@Justine: All users will be able to look for anyone else in the ecosystem.
Margaret
37:24
@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.
Justine Murdy
38:02
@Margaret, so there will be a profile about the venue sizes?
Margaret
39:21
@justine: yes, to start we will have some minimal and basic info about venue spaces. They will be searchable fields.
Justine Murdy
39:34
@Margaret, thanks.
Justine Murdy
40:37
Many presenters at conventional booking conferences are pretty tight-lipped about this kind of info
Justine Murdy
40:46
Or can be!
Lesley Klassen
41:03
What if an artist is looking for a digital venue. Can these be listed?
Briana Doyle
41:08
Are there any size requirements for venues? Or are smaller community venues / non-traditional venues able to be listed on the system?
Margaret
42:09
@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.
Margaret
42:28
*50-person unconventional space
Frédéric Julien
42:47
@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.
Margot Holmes
43:51
Great to hear this @Frederic!
Marilyn Gilbert
44:00
If I am not mistaken, Small World Music is also compiling a database of world music presenters..are you all in touch with them.
Justine Murdy
44:11
Fantastic news @Frederic!
Caitlin Troughton
44:15
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.
Debbie Peters
44:22
Thanks, Marilyn.
Briana Doyle
44:36
@Margaret that is great, thanks
Frédéric Julien
44:43
@Marilyn: Thanks for flagging this particular initiative. I will connect with Umair.

Debbie Peters

Caitlin, ease of onboarding is def in the planning.
Caitlin Troughton
47:05
Re my comment: resources like Artsdata as it evolves
Caitlin Troughton
47:35
Great to hear @debbie
Margaret
47:38
@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.
Robert Sauvey
48:59
full length option is very important for dance
Debbie Peters
49:26
for updates and guides, keep an eye on thepitch.ca
Jai Djwa (he/him) Vancouver
51:06
So for artists, where should they go? To the website?
Debbie Peters
51:31
Jai, yes to the website for info
Robert Sauvey
51:31
Is there a newsletter that is distributed to participants?
Margot Holmes
52:20
no newsletter @Robert - the website will have the most current info on it.
Jai Djwa (he/him) Vancouver
53:32
Got to get to my next meeting! THANK YOU.
Ken Simms
57:06
Curious if a manager/agent will be able to invite non-subscribing presenters to see a showcase.
Robert Sauvey
01:01:24
If a manager or agent upload their roster, do their listings stay up for a limited period of time?
Margaret
01:02:11
@Robert your roster consists of individual profiles for each artist. They exists on the platform for as long as they are not removed.
Robert Sauvey
01:02:34
@margaret thanks for that
Sandra Smith
01:03:11
for an agency, we will need separate search tags and geography fields for each artist
Margaret
01:03:50
@sandra Correct. There will be separate search fields for your agency profile, and each of the specific artist profiles.
Barbara Scales
01:04:09
Can I book Nina Simone?
Marilyn Gilbert
01:04:31
Sorry I just signed her yesterday
Caitlin Troughton
01:04:46
LOL :P
Victoria Stasiuk
01:04:58
LOL as well
Ilene Elkaim
01:05:01
Marilyn.. LOL
Cathy Crawford
01:05:01
Hahahaa!
Paul Destrooper
01:05:41
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?
Barbara Scales
01:06:01
@Marilyn - you’re too fast for me..
Barbara Scales
01:06:09
Share?

For sure
Marilyn Gilbert
01:06:19
always
Debbie Peters
01:06:50
@Paul - yes there is a way for interest to be expressed
Caitlin Troughton
01:06:54
(Watch that video later for some good music)
Paul Destrooper
01:07:11
thank you
Justine Murdy
01:10:18
318 reviews?
Justine Murdy
01:11:11
What does that number refer to?
Barbara Scales
01:11:38
Very 3exciting
Debbie Peters
01:11:38
@Justine, number is just an example, not referencing anything
Justine Murdy
01:11:46
But how is that used?
Douglas Berquist
01:12:16
Thanks so much Inga and Debbie, very informative - you have come quite away since our first chats.
Debbie Peters
01:12:55
Thanks, Doug
Nicole Rochefort
01:12:59
Great question
Caitlin Troughton
01:13:30
So the notes are public on the platform?
Caitlin Troughton
01:13:45
okay
Marilyn Gilbert
01:14:02
This looks totally wonderful
Caitlin Troughton
01:14:16
This is great, nice work!
Frédéric Julien
01:14:29
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.
Ilene Elkaim
01:14:45
Very exciting. Thanks for this session!
Justine Murdy
01:15:32
When will the video guides be available?
Marilyn Gilbert
01:15:32
I appreciate all of your hard work
Cathy Crawford
01:15:32
Great work! Thank you.
Paul Destrooper
01:15:33
I think artists are interested. Do you think presenters will be as much?
Sandra Smith
01:15:44
Great work! Looking forward to seeing it unfold.
Ken Simms
01:16:02
Well done! Looking forward to jumping in!
Caitlin Troughton
