About Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous

Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous was initiated by the founders of the Winnipeg Folk Festival and the West End Cultural Centre, Mitch Podolak and Ava Kobrinsky, in collaboration with Tim Osmond and with the support of a nationally-based volunteer board of directors. Home Routes was incorporated as a not-for-profit arts organization in February of 2007 to create new performance opportunities for French and English speaking musicians and audiences in rural, remote, and urban, communities across Canada, hosted by volunteers in their homes and other community venues.

Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous helps artists to overcome the cost barriers of traveling long distance. Our innovative model offers a viable and lasting alternative to the traditional relationship between artist and presenter because it marries the needs of both into one dynamic program. Artists pay their own transportation costs, and the hosts put them up and feed them all along the circuits. We provide the artist with a tour itinerary that has directions and all the contact info required for a detailed touring schedule.
