BC Festival Symposium at BreakOut West


BC Festival Symposium: October 13th & 14th

BC Touring Council and BC Music Festival Collective are joining together to offer the BC Festival Symposium. The BC Festival Symposium is a gathering of festivals from across BC and an opportunity to get to know other festival organizers, artistic directors, and producers from across the province. We will be hosting round table discussions, presenting inspiring speakers, and most importantly offering opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and networking.

We invite you to join us at this exciting new event which will be held, for its inaugural year, at BreakOut West. This will give you the unique opportunity to attend their showcase events while networking with other festivals and industry professionals.

BreakOut West (October 11-15, 2023)
