It also hopes to foster the music industries in both provinces and create a sense of community amongst music professionals. While the projects are run as separate programs in each province, there is an incredible opportunity to create bridges between BC and Alberta though the shared educational experience at the PEAK Performance Project Bootcamp held in Rockridge Canyon, BC.
