April 29th -The Creative Rural Economy & Cultural Mapping Workshop

at the Annapolis Royal Legion
register by April 19. cost $10, includes lunch.

Are the fishery and forestry, our region’s traditionally important economic sectors, being joined by a third? Here, today, innovative and knowledge-based industries pursue new ideas in computer technology. Medical and scientific research. Education. Tourism. Health Care. Culture.The Arts.
Together they now represent a fast-growing creative economic sector.Linking new economy jobs and our creative sector is accomplished by cultural planning and its key tool, cultural mapping.

An integrated creative, innovative, knowledge-based economic sector is possible here. Join us for that discussion, and to explore a way forward.

Our April 29, 2010 workshop brings together the fertile minds, broad experience and hard-won insights of sixty opinion leaders and doers in our region. We want you to be one of that group.
“Most discussion related to creativity and culture as new economic drivers…has focused on larger urban centers. Yet, these ideas have powerful potential in smaller towns and rural areas. Municipalities large and small are turning to municipal cultural planning as a tool for building local economies through creativity, culture, and quality of place.”   — Dr. Greg Baeker
“Building a Creative Rural Economy”
Municipal World magazine, September 2008
Dr. Greg Baeker, Canada’s leading thinker about the creative rural economy, is our keynote speaker and workshop leader at the gathering in Annapolis Royal.

Participate in the morning keynote presentations and/or the afternoon hands-on workshop, and/or  the open community forum in Bridgetown beginning at 7:00 at the End of the Line Pub.

Because space is limited we ask you register by April 16.

We hope you will join us.   Heather LeBlanc. cre.mapping@gmail.com
