The Hamilton Arts Sector Reference Group has released an indepth research, entitled From Cow Town to Wow Town, which reveals Hamilton City is lagging behind the country’s other main metropolis centres and has a way to go to creating a vibrant city and significant employment and related benefits.

The Hamilton Arts Sector Reference Group has released an indepth research, entitled From Cow Town to Wow Town, which reveals Hamilton City is lagging behind the country’s other main metropolis centres and has a way to go to creating a vibrant city and significant employment and related benefits.

The report, researched and developed over the past twelve months, was recently presented at a conference in Glasgow which featured the growth of the creative economy as the key factor driving economic development.

The Arts Report 2008 aims to identify some of the key strengths and weaknesses across the sector, thereby assisting Council, central government and peak bodies in their planning to provide for the cultural wellbeing of the city. HASRG acknowledges Council has provided funding for the implementation of the Creativity & Identity Strategy and strongly supports ongoing resourcing, particularly the establishment of the Creativity and Identity Forum as specified in the strategy, to help assess and endorse the target 40 projects over the next 4 years for the city.

The Hamilton Arts Sector Reference Group was formed four years ago and is a professional industry stakeholder group with a long term view of the development of arts and culture in Hamilton. The group represents professionals across the arts sector including managers, artists, educators and advisers.
