The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (www.ircpa.net) is a dedicated service organization for musical artists. It was incorporated in 1985 to a) support freelance performers in the music field to make the transition from student to professional and to assist them to reach their goals at various stages in their careers, and b) to inform and inspire audiences with increased knowledge and appreciation of the development of Canadian musical performing artists.
Programs are designed to enable performers to grow in their artistry and gain access to international contacts of the highest standards, in order to be employed at home and abroad. They include Encounters with Employers and hot topic workshops, round-table discussions, brainstorming, networking, strategic long range planning and mentoring.
