Artist Home has always been a company inspired by two pillars, promoting artists and building community. As you probably know, the pandemic shut our company down for 2 and a half years and during that time we worked hard to keep working artists working (creating a Virtual Music Teacher Database for out of work musicians, hosting fundraisers for artists, DIY venues and independent venues while advocating for all artists, venues and the industry to our local and national political leaders). We also, for the first time in a long while, were afforded the time to think about our future, how we want to grow and most importantly, what difference we would like to continue to make for those two pillars our company was built on; supporting artists and nurturing the community that has allowed us to do so. We are excited that Artist Home will be announcing some brand new events for the coming 2023 year. You will also notice a more constant presence in Artist Home promoting local shows and a broadening of our work offering free consultation for Artists while advocating government, community leaders and our industry as a whole on their behalf.
We have realized that in order for us to move forward with these new and exciting endeavors, that it would be best for us to not produce Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival in 2023. We know this event has meant a great deal to audiences throughout the years, it has meant a great deal to us. But in the end, the time that will be afforded to us by forgoing Timbrrr! will allow us to evolve and move forward in all the ways we feel inspired to do so. Of course, there are a number of other factors that come into play that also have influenced this decision (personal time with our families during the holidays, the unpredictability of COVID in the winter and not knowing what that would mean for 1400 people crammed into an indoor space). But truly our want to evolve and the time we need to make that evolution possible is the only one we really need.
This isn’t to say Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival won’t be back in the years to come. But for now, we’re excited to work on and eventually share all the new things we’ll be announcing in this new era for Artist Home.
