Win This $1,200 Live Music Prize By Helping Shape The Music Scene In Surrey

Surrey Music Strategy

Whether you own a music business, are a musician, or a loyal concert attendee, Surrey residents can now help shape the City’s music scene. The City of Surrey is developing a Surrey Music Strategy, and have launched a community engagement website giving a voice to local music industry experts, musicians, business owners and residents.

You’ll be able to provide feedback on Surrey’s pre-pandemic and current music economy by taking the Surrey Music Strategy survey, submitting ideas on how the music scene can continue to grow, and by submitting music-related businesses and venues to the Surrey music map.

Those who take the survey will be eligible to win the ultimate music lovers prize package, valued at more than $1,200.

The input given will help create sustainable, actionable and measurable recommendations that support both the short and long-term development of music in the city.

The project is supported by Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia.

“Music BC looks forward to learning how the Surrey Music Strategy can be developed to best serve Surrey musicians and businesses,” said Executive Director of Music BC Lindsay MacPherson. “Implementing a robust local engagement strategy will help inform recommendations that have the potential to create positive spin-off benefits to cultural economies within the Lower Mainland and throughout B.C.”
