Ambitious City: Showtime for Hamilton’s Music City Strategy


Thursday, November 10, 2016


Lincoln Alexander Centre
160 King St E
Hamilton, ON L8N 1B2

Vision, goals and strategy — the three fundamentals needed to position and promote Hamilton as a music city are in place. And a large chorus of people has stepped forward to champion our diverse and growing music sector as an enabler of economic development and quality of life. Now the hard work of implementation begins. Who should lead the way? What’s the best financial model? How do we measure success?

These and other questions will drive a lively conversation at this year’s 4th annual Ambition City. Attendees will learn about global best practices in creating music cities, hear the specifics of a highly developed Hamilton Music Strategy, and discover what must happen to make this blueprint a reality.

Keynote Speaker: Graham Henderson, President and CEO, Music Canada and Chair, Ontario Chamber of Commerce: “The Mastering of a Music City”

Guest Moderator: Alan Cross, Broadcaster, Writer and Host of the “Ongoing History of New Music,” Canada’s longest running radio documentary
