Cultural Mapping: Building and Fostering Strong Communities
MetadataShow full item record
Cultural mapping has become a part of both the cultural planning and community cultural development fields over the past decade. For the purposes of this research cultural mapping is the process of identifying and stating, in a written or visual inventory, all cultural assets within a specific geographic area. However, this tool is often overlooked in the research and strategies for producing an effective map have only recently become part of the field. The purpose of this study was to take a deeper look at the process of cultural mapping. I worked to identify and define the practice of cultural mapping, examine the connections between cultural mapping, community cultural development (CCD) and cultural planning and develop a body of theoretical knowledge around the process of cultural mapping.
