About the Cultural Mapping Project
Slated for completion by the spring of 2013, Guelph’s Cultural Mapping Project will result in a comprehensive inventory and database of our tangible cultural assets (facilities, organizations, people, public art, built heritage, and festivals) and intangible assets (community histories, traditions, stories). The data collected will also be used to create a cultural web portal – a “one-stop-shop” for information relating to arts, culture and heritage resources in Guelph.
Guelph recognizes that creativity, culture and quality of place are major drivers of sustainable community development. A comprehensive cultural database provides an essential tool for effectively leveraging our community’s existing cultural assets.
The Guelph Cultural Mapping Project is an initiative of the City of Guelph in partnership with Guelph Arts Council and Guelph Chamber of Commerce, and is funded in part by the Province of Ontario. Visit http://guelph.ca/guelphculturemap for details.
