Celebrating our 1st birthday

It has been almost a year since we've launched our beta service at Canadian Film Centre's ideaBOOST launch pad, and what a year it has been.

I am excited to invite all of you to attend our "Open House" event at Heliconian Hall on Monday November 24 (5:30-7:30pm).

There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work to share, artists to discover, and people to meet over some food and drinks.

This is my way of thanking each of you for your support, and celebrating the artists that I have the privilege of serving through BeMused Network.

I am also seeking participants to test-drive some new services behind the scenes. Learn how you can sign up for a session with me.

Please join me in celebration on Nov 24, as we look forward to what is to come! You can click here to RSVP.
