AE West (Artist Entrepreneur West) is a five-week creative entrepreneurship program designed to help emerging professional artists develop sustainable businesses and careers via hands-on mentorship, networking and collaboration. It all takes place at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, in Calgary from November 4 to December 6, 2019.

AE West is an extension of CMI’s highly-regarded, Toronto-based artist entrepreneur program and represents a partnership between CMI, a national not-for-profit organization and NMC. The majority of costs for the program are offset thanks to the generous support of Viewpoint Foundation, TD, Bell Media, Stingray Music and Canadian Heritage.

A dozen artists will have the opportunity to take part in this highly-coveted program that provides access to world-class artist facilities and customized training from industry professionals.

Eligible artists must be 18-years-old or over and actively writing, recording, releasing (or about to release) music and performing live. Interviews will be conducted with appropriate candidates in July and August prior to program admission.
