What role can cultural mapping and cultural development play in the sustainability of small cities? This question lies at the heart of ‘Where is Here’, a major symposium taking place at the Native Sons Hall and Comox Valley Art Gallery in downtown Courtenay July 20 to 22.The symposium will draw more than 25 presenters from international to local. Activities will include keynote speakers, panel discussions, an interdisciplinary art program organized by CVAG, and a post-symposium presentation and hike to the summit of Mount Washington.

The goal of this interactive, 3-day event, is to unpack the practice of cultural mapping as it is intertwined with social justice, creative practice, municipal planning and acknowledgment of sacred space.

Registration for this engaging forum is now underway, and the early-bird rates are in effect until June 30. To register or to find further information, please visit http://www.whereishereculturalmapping.com or click on the PDF poster below.
