CITY OF VANCOUVER


Sound Diplomacy is the global expert in developing long term and self sufficient music strategies. We have worked in over 40 countries and with over 100 clients, spanning public, private and third sectors, such as the Greater London Authority, City of Cardiff, Ville de Lausanne, City of Brisbane and UNIDO. We are proud to be working with the City of Vancouver, Music BC to develop a music strategy for the city.

The aim is to develop policies that treat music as infrastructure and deliver a healthy music ecosystem, which in turn create vibrant, exciting communities, build an international profile and increase the value of music in the city.

What we have done so far:

• We have realised two field visits to Vancouver, where we have organised 18 roundtables and more than 20 meetings with agents across all the spectre of the city’s music ecosystem. Overall, we have met more than 120 people.
• We have completed a survey, that has collated around 600 responses from Vancouver-based musicians, music industry professionals and music fans.
• At the moment, we are analysing the results of the study and writing the strategy.
