Creative City Summits

Why Attend a Creative City Summit?

Meeting your colleagues face to face is an essential part of networking. The first Creative City Network of Canada annual meeting was held in Vancouver in November, 2002. Since then, the CCNC has organized 10 more highly successful annual meetings where representatives from municipalities, arts organizations, provincial and federal government agencies and others can meet to share ideas, connect, and work together to build vital infrastructure for arts and cultural development in Canada.

Each Creative City Summit offers content that is national in scope, and addresses the breadth of issues within the practice of local cultural development for communities of different sizes and geographies.
