A Digital Showcasing Service
ThePitch.ca is a digital showcasing service that brings artists and arts presenters together 24/7/365. As a business-to-business (B2B) application, The Pitch seeks to build a broad, trusted community of touring artists, performance companies, agencies, presenting networks, and presenters seeking live or digital performances. The Pitch caters to all performing arts: music, theatre, dance, storytelling, circus, variety and other performances.
We are grateful for the support for digital innovation we have received:
