Selection Process

We aim to make our event as inclusive and accessible as possible, but can accommodate a maximum of 40 participants (approx. 30 performers and 10 composers). The selection committee includes members of the TCML team and invited guest artists. The event is aimed at those who identify as early-career (emerging) artists, and applications will be assessed primarily on the perceived benefit to the participant. The selection process for TCML 2017 will be a blind process that will be set up by TCML organizers who are not on the selection jury. The written statements of intent are the most important elements of the application, while technical and aesthetic assessments of the applicant's supporting materials are a secondary considerations. 

We will introduce participants in mid-April!



Please note that our primary venue, 918 Bathurst, has gendered washrooms and is not wheelchair-accessible (there are three steps to the entrance and a short flight of stairs up to the performance space, as well as down to the basement).  Our secondary venue, the Canadian Music Centre, is wheelchair-accessible, and has gender-neutral washrooms.

If you have any questions about the application process, or have any specific accessibility concerns that you think the TCML team could assist with,including requesting to submit an application in a non-written format (i.e. as an audio or video file), please feel free to get in touch.
