Nova Scotia Music Week to Host First Nocturnal Cities Forum

Nova Scotia Music Week will host the first Nocturnal Cities Forum produced in partnership with international music agency Sound Diplomacy on Saturday, Nov. 3rd, in Truro, NS.

The Nocturnal Cities Forum will explore the relationship between city planning, strategy, development and the night time economy with the top minds from municipalities, regions, academics, consultancies and the music and creative industries in attendance to discuss, debate and introduce new thinking, action and structure to develop more vibrant, night time economies in Canada and around the world.

With speakers and moderators from across the globe, the Nocturnal Cities Forum will include panels and presentations with topics ranging from harassment prevention, health and wellness, night time strategy, and curating community, all keeping with the overall theme of Nova Scotia Music Week 2018, Building Stronger Music Communities.

With decades of experience in the music industry, Sound Diplomacy bridges the gap between music and the world of policy and urban planning. They are trusted by organisations around the world to create and deliver strategies for economic and cultural growth. Sound Diplomacy is the leader of the Music Cities movement, which sees culture built into the urban environment through policy. They help governments develop healthy music ecosystems to create vibrant, exciting communities, and have helped over 500 artists and companies break into new markets around the world.

Delegates from all over Canada and the world will attend Nova Scotia Music Week, where the Nocturnal Cities Forum will makeup one of three Nova Scotia Music Week conference components, the rest of which will be announced in the coming weeks.

With the support of Music Cities Events, The Province of Nova Scotia, FACTOR, and the Government of Canada, this will be the inaugural presentation of the Nocturnal Cities Forum, which is sure to become an internationally recognized and revered program.
