North Shore Culture Map
North Van Arts has taken the lead on a project to map the cultural assets of the North Shore of Vancouver including: the District of North Vancouver, the City of North Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver, and the lands of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
Having been a key cultural player on the North Shore for the past 49 years, North Van Arts is well aware we have a vibrant arts and culture scene, but many in the sector still feel invisible. So, we formed an advisory committee made up of cultural players from government, non-profit, tourism, and business sectors and together we decided to do something about it.
Information about the cultural assets within the three municipalities and two First Nations will be compiled into a free, online, GIS driven, interactive mapping tool that will become a hub for North Shore culture and available to everyone. This tool is intended for residents, tourists, planners, and the cultural sector, and will help build audiences, drive tourism, fill gaps, and encourage partnerships to better highlight our rich cultural diversity.
Expected launch in 2020.
