As one of the main goals in the City’s Culture Master Plan, Talent Development is of utmost importance in supporting local artists.”

“MusicOntario is thrilled to work with the City of Brampton to deliver these sessions for music entrepreneurs and artists,” said MusicOntario’s manager, Emy Stantcheva. “The Creative Exchange Pro event in 2017 highlighted the City’s true commitment to its creative class, and we look forward to continued collaboration to serve Brampton’s music community.
