Have you ever wondered what historic sites or stories occurred in your own back yard or on your street?
Where would you go to find that information? Who could you talk to about what happened 100 or even 200 years ago?
How could you get involved and share stories or information on historic events or sites?
Wouldn't it be great if there was a collective database and map where we could all go and have input into sharing the many cultural aspects that have impacted our family, friends and neighbours, and still continue to influence us and this area, our beautiful home, today?
Wait! The Culture Alliance in the Heart of Georgian Bay is Weaving Our Story through the Culture Asset Data Mapping project and needs your help to do just that!
How can you get involved you ask? It's easy and fun too!
To learn, share and experience this new exciting initiative, visit www.culturealliance.ca/culturalassets. There you will learn how to drop a pin to share a story, information, specific sites and cultural assets with others, so together, we can all collaborate and learn – Let’s Weave Our Story.
