About the Guelph Cultural Mapping Project

Last April, members of Guelph’s arts community were invited to add their profiles to an online database, designed to provide the community with a searchable, comprehensive directory and visual map of individual artists, businesses, cultural organizations, events, venues, built heritage, collections, and public art.

A selection of stories was also commissioned to celebrate some of the people and events that have played a part in building Guelph’s rich history.

The Guelph Cultural Mapping Project is an initiative of the City of Guelph in partnership with the Guelph Chamber of Commerce and Guelph Arts Council, and is funded in part by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
