Closing The Gap Survey
September 2, 2021
“Closing the Gap: Impact and Representation of Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour (IBPOC) Live Music Workers in Canada” is a national research project led by the Canadian Live Music Association (CLMA) and its partners.
The study is designed to quantify the impact and representation of the live music community in Canada, and examine the challenges and barriers that impede IBPOC participation within the industry. The study’s findings and recommendations will inform the development of an industry-wide action plan to implement more inclusive practices nationwide.
As part of the research project, an online survey has just been released in French and English. Anyone and everyone working in the live music community, in every region of Canada, is encouraged to participate. To thank you for your participation, we will have a random draw for a $200 gift card every week the survey is open. A final report outlining the study’s findings and recommendations will be made publicly available at the conclusion of the research later this year at: www.canadianlivemusic.ca.
