North Shore Culture Map Asset Survey
Please complete the form below to add a new listing to the map. If you are submitting information to update an asset already listed on the map, submit that here.
What is a ‘Cultural Asset’?
A cultural asset is something that has value because of its contribution to a community’s creativity, knowledge, traditions, culture, meaning, and vitality. They can be the places you visit to express your cultural identity, and/or the resources one uses to pursue a creative practice. If you are unsure if your listing should be on the map, please read through the categories and criteria.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS/WRITERS/CREATIVES
For privacy reasons, we will not include individual artists who are located or work out of a private residence with one exception. Locations such as artist studios based on or in a private residence, where there are regular operating hours open and accessible to the public may be considered. Note we also require written permission from the owner of the residence (subject to review and approval) in order to be approved.
Artists may be listed in association with an existing asset, be included in keywords which are searchable by users, and/or be featured as part of a festival or event listing. Artists may chose to form a collective, cooperative, or create a new organization/group that may be featured on the map, so long as they meet all of the other criteria.
About the Survey
The survey should take 15-20 minutes to complete. You can complete a portion of a survey and return later to finish. If you have any issues with the survey or have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Personal information including names, titles, emails and phone numbers will be kept confidential and not featured on the map.
To accomplish this goal, we recognize the rich ethnocultural diasporas that are all part of the North Shore community. We acknowledge that we live and practice on the traditional, unceded territories of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
We also recognize the need to collaborate with the residents and guests of the region. We strive to include, and celebrate all the identities and will not discriminate or exclude any group or organization based on ethnicity, sexual orientation/gender, faith, age, ability, or income.
