ARTINERARY: Creative Annapolis mapping culture, African choir, and Mi’kmaq basketry
The Town of Annapolis Royal and the Applied Geomatics Research Group have launched an innovative cultural mapping project called “Creative Annapolis” to produce an interactive online map of creative and artisanal talents and businesses in the Annapolis region. CAO Amery Boyer describes the project timeline as tight, as they hope to go live on May 1st. To be listed, take ten minutes to fill out and submit the four-question questionnaire available under ‘Creative Annapolis’ in the News & Announcements section of www.annapolisdigby.com. The more artists, artisans, venues, galleries, and museums the better, so spread the word. Contact Boyer at 532-3146 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
