In an effort to help out businesses all across Canada. I'm hoping to feature businesses all across the country in blog posts highlighting how they got started and how the pandemic has affected them!
Today we have:
Guelph & Area Independent & New Media, focusing on local arts, music & movements that matter.
Where is your business based out of?
Why did you start your business?
The company began as GAIN Music in 2011 and was launched with our annual March Festival. The goal has always been to bring people in our community together while focusing on artists, bands, musicians & creatives as well as the businesses that support local arts & music.
The company has always been about facilitating; whether it's through throwing shows & events or by connecting artists, musicians and creatives with one another to create amazing artistic projects.
How was the pandemic affected your business?
We have taken the pandemic as an opportunity to rebrand to become GAIN Media in order to cover more than just the arts & music, as important as those are to the core of our business.
Challenges will always arise when running a small business, and as unprecedented as the pandemic has been, it also helped us re-focus our efforts and has hopefully given us the chance to be that much more involved within our community.
Our 10th annual festival is in the works & in the meanwhile we'll be launching a Local Arts & Music Zine that will be released soon!
