As a Creative City of Music since 2015, Kingston envisages using music as a driver for sustainable development by focusing on the revitalisation of the inner city to harness the full creative potential of people from vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. Another important feature is that will leverage this status by building private-public partnerships in the field of music to increase the number of creative clusters and development programs and establish the Live Music Museum, a creative incubator focusing on buliding capacities and offering vocational courses to youths ; broadening accessto, and particaption in, cultural life by bringing music to outdoor venues. This measure will also promote intercultural dialogue through exchange programmes through the Edna Manley Music School, as well as the Simon Bolivar Cultural Centre ,aimed to develop initiatives showcasing the ties between cities in the Caribbean and fostering exchnges of know-how, best practices and expertise with other Creative Cities of Music.
