Music Canada Makes A Mark At  Music Policy Forum Summit 

By FYI Staff

The 2018 Music Policy Forum Summit took place October 26-27 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. The event brought together a collection of musicians, researchers, policymakers, industry and nonprofit leaders, and other stakeholders for a wide-ranging exploration of some of the most promising and exciting thought leadership in the music and policy space.


Music Canada’s EVP and Music Policy Forum co-founder Amy Terrill was a speaker at the summit, presenting a workshop entitled Bridging the Gap: Effective Models of Local Governments in Partnership with Local Music Communities. The seminar centred on sharing insights from Music Canada’s report Music Policy Forum Summit: Examining the Merits of Music Offices, Boards, and Night Mayors, released in May 2018 at Canadian Music Week. Since then, the report has been updated to include the experiences of three additional cities whose unique approaches to developing music ecosystems offer a valuable addition to the paper.

During the second day of the summit, Terrill also moderated a panel entitled True Adventures in Launching a Music Strategy. It featured practitioners from cities at various stages between vision and implementation: former Toronto City Councillor Josh Colle; Lynn Ross, Cultural Planner at the City of Vancouver; Allison Harnden, Nighttime City of Pittsburgh Economy Manager;  and Ottawa Music Industry Coalition GM, Nik Ives-Allison.
