The summit will kick off with a keynote discussion on the Creative Footprint Montreal report from us at VibeLab. The report assesses the city’s cultural and creative ecosystem’s impact and provides a roadmap for a sustainable cultural and creative economy.
We at VibeLab, will present key research findings and urban policy recommendations from Creative Footprint Montréal — the first comprehensive study of Montréal’s music and nightlife spaces and communities since COVID-19.
