Career Moves Weekend Workshop was held at the Toronto Centre for the Arts on November 12 & 13, 2011.
Here is some feedback from participants and panelists who attended the event.
I want to take a moment to thank you for bringing me to Toronto to participate in the International Resource Centre’s Career Moves Weekend. I admire what you are doing with young artists in Canada and think it is quite unique. These people are very lucky that you expend such considerable efforts in helping them move into successful professional careers. The personal guidance you offer and the programs you present give them the confidence and knowledge they need to make important decisions and embark on new initiatives. I hope that your program will find new and ongoing sources of support so that it will reach an even broader audience and remain affordable to any artists or arts administrators who wish to avail themselves of what it has to offer.
All warmest regards,
I found “Career Moves” sessions both informative and very inspiring. Not only you provided quality and thought-provoking disputes but you also managed to create an environment for young artists to meet with guest professionals who are the leading figures in music industry today. Thank you and please do continue this incredible work.

Thank you so much for including me in this year’s IRCPA panel – I really enjoyed the experience and having the opportunity to talk about PR and photo shoots. I also really treasured the chance to meet “Dame Edna”, who is lovely and generous with her time and advice. Wonderful.

I would like to take this opportunity and to profoundly thank you for organizing wonderful 2 days of seminars this past weekend… It has been an invaluable experience and a great information source. I wish these events will continue and grow as they are a unique and wonderful platform not only for musicians but also, more importantly, for developing a professional and well informed circle of Artists Managers as well.

Thank you so much for the seminar. It was so very informative and I met some amazingly talented people. I feel very blessed to have seen the article in the Jewish Tribune and to have connected with you.

Thank-you for a wonderful weekend of workshops. It was such a great opportunity to hear from so many experts in one room. It’s not often that you get to share knowledge, shake hands, and share questions and discussion with so many key people in our industry. Thank-you!
After hearing these professionals and artists be so open to sharing their knowledge, advice and experiences, I feel that it is more possible than ever for me to have a viable career in the Performing Arts. What an EMPOWERING event!
