Music NS to Benefit from Creative Industries Fund

Halifax-Chebucto MLA Joachim Stroink has announced $53,000 in funding for Music Nova Scotia through the Creative Industries Fund.

Administered by the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, the fund is designed to help both businesses and non-profits expand and improve export activity, and global competitiveness.

“Creativity and innovation are the building blocks of economic growth,” said Stroink. “I would like to thank Music Nova Scotia for their commitment to allow our most creative people to flourish.”

The money Music Nova Scotia is receiving will be invested towards the International Digital Marketing Program for the 2016 fiscal year.

“The Creative Industries Fund investment has provided Music Nova Scotia with new resources to market our export-ready artists and music companies around the world,” said Music Nova Scotia Executive Director Scott Long. “The investment allows us to use digital marketing tools and techniques to expand upon our existing export strategy and market access projects to reach more music buyers and music consumers than ever before.”
