[O]n Thursday, February 2, 2012, we’ll be attending a very exciting event in Brampton. The city is hosting a Creative Economy Summit to promote awareness of the creative economy and Brampton’s role within it. The goal is to educate and define the creative economy by sharing information and best practices and creating a networking environment for its members.
As if that isn’t already enough incentive to attend, there are also two very interesting keynote speakers confirmed: Jian Ghomeshi and Tim Jones. Jian Ghomeshi an award-winning broadcaster, writer, musician and producer. Tim Jones is the President and CEO of Artscape, a non-profit organization that makes space for creativity and transforms communities. Additional speakers are set to be announced shortly.
You might have noticed that this Summit and our upcoming Facilities Portal have a common goal of bringing the arts world together to engage in knowledge sharing, so of course we are eager to participate. We’ll have a booth set up in the Atrium during breaks, so be sure to stop in to learn more and to catch a sneak preview of the Facilities Portal in action!
