• “Regional meetings are an effective way to build awareness, knowledge, and partnerships with colleagues in the region. On Vancouver Island, it has been an opportunity to share our work, look for collaborations and discuss the uniqueness of cultural development on the west coast and on an island!”

    - Nichola Reddington, City of Victoria, BC

  • "What is unique about the Creative City Network regional meetings is the opportunity to meet with your neighbour Network members and not have to travel too far. The meetings focus on topics that are of interest to people in the region, and leverage local partnerships and experts. I always meet new community leaders through the regional meetings and learn a lot from them. It is like a live local Creative City Listserv experience – but better, because you can see everyone!"

    - Elena Bird, City of Toronto, ON
