The Toronto Music Industry Advisory Council proudly released for public consultation its draft Toronto Music Strategy. The draft report will, once official adopted by City Council, become Toronto’s first official Music Strategy for the years ahead.
I’m on VIBE 105.5 FM, discussing business affairs, intellectual property, branding and monetization for the music industry.
The efficacy, sensibility and fairness of Toronto’s noise by-laws is crucial to building a ‘music city’. And, the Toronto Music Industry Advisory Council, along with the Music Office, is working to ensure that the music industry’s voice is being heard.
I am a big proponent of how YDS leverages a shared “commons” to create public-private partnerships between residents, businesses and the City; and, in turn, how these partnerships drive the formation of cultural capital and celebrate diversity.
I am very grateful and honoured to be elected as TMAC Co-Chair (alongside Co-Chair and City Councillor Michael Thompson), and I look forward to serving TMAC and the City in this capacity as we work together to define what music and culture means to Torontonians and our music industry.
On Tuesday June 2, 2015, I attended the Downtown-Yonge BIA unveiling of its Music Strategy for Yonge St. Highlights of the BIA’s strategy include a reclamation and showcase of historic signage and an app-guided walking tour for legendary music venues such as Friar’s and Le Coq D’Or. One of the most important aspects of the strategy is the proposal to bring music incubator programs to Downtown Yonge. In partnership with Coalition Music and the City’s Economic Development & Culture Division, an Artist Management Program is set to launch in November 2015.

Tonight I’ll be at the launch party for Ryerson’s Legal Innovation Zone! We are very excited to be a part of the team that is using technology to change how Canadians perceive and interact with the legal system.
The Legal Innovation Zone at Ryerson University is a co-working space for the people and ideas that will change the status quo of Canada’s legal system. The world of law and justice in Canada is, in many ways, operating as it did 100 years ago. For many Canadians, it is too slow, too expensive or too complex. It’s a system in desperate need of innovation.
I recently sat down with Peter Hogg, the legendary lawyer and Osgoode Hall Professor Emeritus who, quite literally, wrote the book on Canadian constitutional law.
Kalogiannides Law is proudly co-sponsoring “How to Establish Yourself as an Expert in the Legal Profession: PR Tips and Tricks” hosted by ADR Think Tank.
Our three wonderfully talented panelists will share their experiences & insights into what makes an expert an “expert”, and how to incorporate social media and PR strategies into your glorious ascent into the ‘Expert’ Stratosphere!
