2017 Year in Review – British Columbia Music Study
On October 18, 2017, Music Canada Live announced that it is conducting an Economic Impact Assessment of BC’s Live Music Sector. The study is being facilitated by Nordicity and will focus on the live music sector by profiling BC-based venues, festivals and promoters. In addition to analyzing the economic impact of live music in BC, the study will make key recommendations for developing growth through things such as music tourism.
BC stakeholders will be asked to engage with the research in a variety of ways, including round-tables in British Columbia, interviews and an online survey.
Music Canada Live will use the results of the research to leverage ongoing conversations with Government regarding the importance of the BC Music Fund. Continuing thanks to Creative BC, Music Canada, The City of Vancouver, This Is Blueprint, Atomique Productions and Brandlive for their support of the project.
