Honey Jam Special Performance: Celebrating Women
TIFF is collaborating with Honey Jam for a special performance to celebrate women, especially inspired by the gutsy ones!
Honey Jam is a non-profit, multicultural artist development program run by PhemPhat Entertainment Group. Since 1995, Honey Jam has worked with young, emerging Canadian woman artists of all cultures and representing all genres of music to provide mentoring, education, and vocal coaching, as well as performance and networking opportunities. The annual program culminates with a stellar showcase of live music. Honey Jam organizes impactful experiences for the artists such as songwriting camps, industry knowledge workshops, mentor cafes, tickets to major artist concerts, and opportunities to attend music industry conferences and events. The program also offers consideration for paid live and online performances, and participation in artist talk sessions to learn from major artists such as Jessie Reyez, Melanie Fiona, Serena Ryder, Marsha Ambrosius, Estelle, LeToya Luckett, Elle Varner, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Alison Hinds, Shontelle, and more. It is a welcoming, supportive sisterhood and a safe space for young women to not only learn about the industry but also to be vulnerable, to build self esteem, and to build long-lasting relationships.
