Community BreakOut West Conference Delegate program

It’s a pretty big deal for Kelowna to hosting BreakOut west in 2023. The event has had a positive impact on our community the last two occasions we hosted it in 2010 and 2018. We are working to create a bigger legacy in our music community this time around, guided by the Central Okanagan Music Strategy. With the support of the City of Kelowna, Tourism Kelowna, Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia and our many volunteers, we will do just that! 

By answering the below questions you will be submitting your interest in receiving all or some of the rewards part of this program. They include:

  • consideration to receive one of up to 10 BreakOut West Delegate passes (valued at approximately $250)
  • A virtual group session on preparing and making the most of industry conferences with Liam Prost, the Breakout West Programming Manager, in September
  • To receive invitations to the Creative Okanagan and BreakOut West host committee welcome event on Wednesday, October 11, 2023
  • Connections to the host committee artist development subcommittee
  • General support from Creative Okanagan and possible other benefits to be announced

Members of the volunteer BreakOut West Host Committee will review all entries. Those who live in the Central Okanagan, clearly explain why they want to attend and communicate their understanding of the conference will be eligible, considered and invited to participate in all or some of the program components. Submit to your interest to participate by July 13, 2023.

  • Are you a Central Okanagan musician or industry member?
  • Are you keen to learn about artist development to support your own and/or other artists in our community?
  • Have you identified goals you can achieve by participating in the sessions and networking at the BreakOut West Conference?

If you answered yes to these questions, than this is for you!

If you have a website or other presence on the internet please share it with us.
You must commit to attending at least 50% of the conference and networking activities as we want to ensure our local artists who can participate get the change to obtain as much benefit as possible from this opportunity.

We will be in touch by the end of August! Thank you!
