The City of Vancouver is looking for help to identify our cultural spaces.
The City of Vancouver is looking for help to identify our cultural spaces.

It isn’t all about bike lanes and chicken coops.  Through its 2008-2018 Culture Plan, the City of Vancouver recognizes that “Vancouver’s arts and culture scene is a priceless benefit to its citizens and visitors.”

In the latest phase of the plan, the City is now seeking help to complete a map of the cultural spaces around Vancouver with a goal to improving the information it has already gathered.

Defined as places “where people express themselves through art and culture”, the City of Vancouver Cultural Services has currently identified approximately 250 spaces on the map, but are aware that many more exist and not on the list.

You can help identify those missing spaces by checking the online map for cultural spaces you know to determine if the information is correct (note that the Internet Explorer web browser is not supported in accessing the map).  If there are cultural spaces missing or the information is inaccurate you can add the information through the survey form.

The City will collect the information through June and a moderator will consider all input for the next version of the map to be published in the fall.

Vancouver Presents!
