Creative Okanagan is seeking input from community members as they embark on a two-year project to develop the Central Okanagan Music Strategy. A group of 15 community members will work alongside Creative Okanagan to develop the strategy, which is an initiative of Kelowna's 2020-2025 Cultural Plan and seeks to "advance the sustainability of the music industry in our region."

The arts and culture sector is an important contributor to Kelowna’s visitor economy. Music events like BreakOut West in 2018 and Denim on the Diamond 2019 drove over $1.1 million in combined economic impact in Kelowna. Stakeholders and residents are encouraged to complete the survey, which should take about 10 minutes, so Creative Okanagan understands the priorities of the community as it relates to the local music scene.

Click here to complete the survey before August 31, 2020.
