MusicOntario returns to Sudbury on May 23rd to 25th for the 2019 edition of NOMFA. NOMFA is the region's largest gathering of the music and film with a purpose to celebrate the best in film, television, and music created in Northern Ontario over the past two years. It's going to be a great few days of panels, showcases and celebration, and MusicOntario is proud to present two events during the conference:
Thursday, May 23rd

Saturday, May 25th
Underground & Underserved: Building Community and Audience Outside of the Box
12:30pm - McEwen School of Architecture, 85 Elm Street, Lecture Hall
From electronic and EDM to hip-hop and multicultural fusion, some of the biggest hits on the charts stem from genres that still don’t get the support or resources from the industry that match the demand for, or success of the music. Share positive ways to connect, engage and mobilize with like-minded creators, and discuss how the industry is changing its tune to create space for the underground, different voices and fresh perspective in the mainstream.
Moderator: Sarah Ferries (Music Ontario)
Panelists: Rosina Kazi (LAL), Ayo Leilani (Witch Prophet), Melody McKiver (artist)
