Symposium: July 20-22, Courtenay BC

This 3-day event brings together over 25 cultural mapping specialists from Canada and beyond to reflect on current practice, exchange knowledge and innovate within the field. Presenters include municipal development actors, academics and artists (many fit into several of these categories). The event includes keynote speakers, panel discussions and art interventions.


Faculty/Professional: $210.00

Student/ Low Income: $99.75

One Day Only (Thursday or Friday): $94.50


To Register for the Post-Symposium Public Event: Talk, Walk and Make with Comox Valley Artist Clive Powsey (see Symposium Schedule for details), email: Please inform Sharon if you will require transportation to North Island College and Mount Washington.


The Symposium takes place Downtown Courtenay – at the Comox Valley Art Gallery (580 Duncan Ave), and Native Sons Hall (360 Cliffe Ave).


Many options are available in the Comox Valley for overnight accommodation. We suggest booking early given the timing of the symposium, which falls in peak tourism season. A few options within walking-distance include:

Old House Village         Best Western

Comox Valley Inn           Cona Hostel
