Tell your friends about 4479!
4479 – Toronto’s music city campaign – launched at NXNE in June and got some great press. Since then we’ve been building this website and continuing to advocate at City Hall for two important things: a music office and a music advisory board. Both of these structures have been employed very successfully in Austin, Texas where they have grown their music industry and its impact on everything from jobs to quality of life to tourism. Toronto already has an awesome music scene and a tonne of activity going on in the sector but we think even more can happen if there is a better dialogue with City Hall, greater understanding and awareness, and ultimately, a business-friendly environment. Just look at what the film community has done in Toronto over the last 20 years. There is no reason why music can’t also be considered one of the city’s key economic sectors.
But the real power of this campaign will be people like YOU! Help us spread the word by telling your friends and followers all about it!Have you heard about @4479Toronto? It celebrates #Toronto as a great music city!
