No cash for a tip? One of the challenges faced by street performers today is that many people don't carry cash, which can present barriers to audiences who want to tip performers.
Tip with PIVX.
The Emerging Musicians Program replaced the Street Performers Program in 2018, capitalizing on the successful track record of the program launching musical careers.
In partnership with the Downtown Barrie Business Association and
Ontario Musicians Cooperative, Inc. this program supports downtown revitalization efforts by creating a lively and dynamic atmosphere in the city's core while harnessing the downtown community as a platform to incubate and showcase emerging musicians.
See program details.
This year job opportunities include content creation and administrative and technical support in addition to musicians.
Apply online via the OMCI website.
