culture unleashed

In addition to being major wealth generators, culture and the work of our artists and artisans are essential to the health of our communities. The cultural/arts sector is vital to attracting the creative workers and investors driving the knowledge economy. It is also the fusion of our rich heritage with the creative expression of our artists that will produce the most compelling tourism experiences.

The preservation and celebration of culture (both aboriginal and european-based) is central to our work. Sample projects include: feasibility assessments (Newfoundland Mi’kmaq Museum and Cultural Centre), market needs analyses (Mid-sized Arts Venue, St. John’s), heritage master plans (Cupids Heritage Master Plan and Preliminary Strategy for 2010 Celebration), strategic plans (Resource Centre for the Arts, St. John’s) and business plans (Neptune Leatherworks Economuseum).
