mapping Vancouver Island + rural islands
The Vancouver Island/rural islands arts ecosystem has a lot going for it. We have a wide variety of assets (or infrastructure) that supports our sector, including art schools, supply stores, venues, studio spaces, galleries, fabricators and more. Click map below, taking shape (work in progress!)
One goal of this mapping project is to display these assets so that more people know they exist, and can find the ones closest to where they live/create. Another goal is to reveal the gaps in supports and services (some parts of the ecosystem are clearly over-served relative to other parts), and use this knowledge to start strategizing about how we might fill these gaps.
