Do you live in Hamilton? Are you engaged in creative work? If you haven't already, please take a few minutes to fill in the Hamilton Creative City Initiative, a survey intended to map the burgeoning creative movement in Hamilton.

The website explains:

Over the next few months, the Initiative will be gathering information, in three stages, through targeted surveys about creative organizations, workers and consumers. The intent is to build a holistic picture of this significant segment of Hamilton’s economy. We will be gathering economic and demographic data about each of these stakeholder groups.

Organized by the Imperial Cotton Centre for the Arts, the Centre for Community Study and the Community Centre for Media Arts, this project is an effort to "draw connections and highlight patterns in the industry as a whole" as a first step toward understanding how best to cultivate Hamilton's creative industry.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant. Ryan volunteers with Hamilton Light Rail, a citizen group dedicated to bringing light rail transit to Hamilton. Ryan writes a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. He also maintains a personal website and has been known to post passing thoughts on Twitter @RyanMcGreal. Recently, he took the plunge and finally joined Facebook.
