Ignite Young Songwriters - Vancouver East Cultural Centre

From the Vancouver East Cultural Centre website, for young songwriters living in and around the Greater Vancouver Area (ah, I lived in Van City many years ago now...) you will find the following:
Attention Songwriters aged 13-21!

The Ignite Songwriter’s Intensive is an opportunity for young artists to receive one-on-one mentorship with young musicians currently making waves in the Canadian music scene.

The mentors for the 2008 Intensive will be Leah Abramson, of indie-rock group Octoberman and folk revivalists Dyad; Ryan Guldemond, of the acclaimed chamber-pop sensation Mother Mother; and Dan Mangan, one of Vancouver’s finest young singer-songwriters.

The mentors will help the youth create new material to be presented as part of the Ignite Youth Week Festival, held at The Cultch May 5th-10th, 2008.

Participants will not only receive mentorship from world-class artists, but also consultation sessions with industry professionals, a demo recording session at the Hive Creative Labs, a performance techniques workshop, and a showcase at The Cultch.
