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 5 to December 7, 2018. Last year’s program included artists from Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, among other Western Canadian cities.

A dozen artists will have the opportunity to take part in this highly-coveted program that gives artists and bands access to the world-class artist facilities at Studio Bell while receiving 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.
