Unleash the potential of music in your economy.

Music Cities Together is a joint initiative between Music Policy Forum and Sound Music Cities. 

Collectively, we have been driving the music cities movement in the United States and Canada. We have guided cities and states through the process of developing music strategies; commissioned and executed music censuses; developed and distributed best practices guides; convened leaders across sectors in a variety of platforms and generally worked to define and strengthen the music strategy field.


Music Cities Together aims to be a one-stop portal for community leaders at every stage of the process.

Working within the constraints of any budget, Music Cities Together will activate our network of music industry leaders, public officials, researchers and other music innovators to play a supportive role.
