Since 2016, City of Waterloo has hosted an annual culture summit, Amplify. Every year the community has participated and gathered to hear inspiring stories of creativity, collaboration, placemaking, and innovation. Many of these stories have come from artists, administrators, and creative entrepreneurs working in our community.

If you have a project, concept, program, or success that you would be willing to share, we would be in interested in hearing from you. We are currently accepting proposals for peer to peer sessions at Amplify 2019.

Submissions should focus on projects that use the arts to create place, promote belonging, and offer innovative use of resources, technology, programs, or partnerships.


Full event details and requirements are available on our online application form.
