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.
Building on the success of our inaugural Creative City Summit in Whitehorse, Yukon in 2008, Creative City Network of Canada annual meetings follow the Summit format beginning in 2011 through 2014. The Summit is designed to be more intimate and interactive to provide practitioners with a platform to exchange ideas and learn from their peers. These meetings are 2.5 days, and include study tours of the host municipality.
