West Anthem – Calgary and Edmonton Music Strategy Survey

West Anthem – Calgary and Edmonton Music Strategy Survey

Calling all musicians, music industry and fans in Edmonton and Calgary! Our survey to assess the two cities’ music ecosystems is available now: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5279551/064c2260fd46. Your opinion is vital to the West Anthem Music Strategy – thanks for your collaboration!

West Anthem (formerly Alberta Music Cities Initiative) hired Sound Diplomacy to create a Music Strategy for Calgary and Edmonton. Using feedback from locals in the music industry and best practice examples from around the world, this will result in a strategy to engage musicians, industry members, and audiences to support the industry’s future growth.

This survey aims to better understand Edmonton and Calgary’s music ecosystem as part of the study’s ongoing research. We want to make sure that we find the challenges and opportunities you face and the common goals you have with other Calgary and Edmonton music fans.

When you complete this survey, your name will be entered into a draw for one of the following prizes:
– 1 of 2 yearly memberships to the National Music Centre in Calgary
– 2 tickets to Reuben in the Dark at The Palace Theatre on February 28 in Calgary
– 2 tickets to James Taylor at Rogers Place on April 17, 2020, in Edmonton
– 2 tickets to Cirque Axel at Rogers Place on July 3, 2020, in Edmonton

In order to successfully take the survey and make sure your opinions reach us, please click on the SUBMIT button on the very last page of the survey. It will take between 5 and 7 minutes to finish.

The survey will close on February 10, 2020. You have until then to participate.

Thank you in advance for your time and participation!
