How it works: Each performer/group will have :30 to 1hr (max) to do what they do best. The stage is yours! The platform is equipped for high-quality streaming and includes live chat and other features that allow you to connect with your audience. Visitors will access each stage through a unique URL. You can stream your performance from anywhere: your home, studio, or another unique locale.

We’ll provide technical and creative guidance to ensure that each performance goes off without a hitch. In addition, we have developed a payment system that empowers performers to generate money for themselves or for other charitable causes beyond the initial stipend of $125.

All performers/groups are also entered to win funding and support for creative projects in 2021. More details about awards, our panel of judges, and criteria will be announced soon, but here’s a glimpse:

  • Financial grants up to $7,500
  • Educational & career resources
  • Art, music, & creative supplies
  • Workspaces
  • Recording studio sessions
