The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service, the National Institute for Culture and History, the Office of the Music Ambassador, the Belize Coalition of Service Providers, and the Music Industry Association of Belize were present at a handing over of the platform “artist.bz” on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. This platform, which is the first of its kind in Belize, will function as a united entity in which several local artists can promote their craft in one central location. For now, the site will only house musicians but in the future, other artists will have the ability to share and promote their craft.

While artist.bz will house local artists and their skills, the platform will open them to both local and international markets by creating biographic profile, sharing contact information, and attaching links to their works and relevant photos.

According to Music Ambassador, Shyne Barrow, Local artists will be able to use the site in a more professional and business-like fashion. While they can gain exposure from other social media sites, artists.bz differs from others in the sense that their music and craft will be advertised as a business, a way to make a profit.
