Who Is The Creative Capital of Canada
It’s all of us; from the families who built this region, to the industrial workforce, the arts community, our tech sector and everything in between.
The movement started out as a collection of ideas, concerns and conversations and is now taking shape in social media.
Years ago, Austin Texas audaciously claimed the title ‘Live Music Capital of the World’. Then they audaciously set out to make it so. Their hard work to build a confident and vibrant community, that attracts creative minds, has paid off as they successfully compete against larger cities in the innovation economy. Considering our track record, why can we strive to be the Creative Capital of Canada?”
