Introducing the new website

May 24, 2012


The SD&G Community Futures Development Corporation (SDG Futures)
and their Cultural Development Coordinator, Bruce Davis, have re-launched the new and improved website.

It now contains the in-depth Cultural Mapping Database tool triggered
by the Culturescape Report’s initiatives.

The website also contains a culture blog written by Mr. Davis which
is used as a tool to broadcast various developments in the Culturescape Initiatives, like the Culture and Arts Summit slated for September 2012.

On a monthly basis, the blog will also feature and spotlight a unique cultural and or artistic activity or person in the region of SD&G, Cornwall and Akwesasne.

This spotlight will help identify and broadcast by way of social media and
the Internet an already rich and growing culture in the region.

Another important component to the website is SDG HUB which is a job opportunity creation tool and a meeting place that will help connect
cultural and artistic people in SD&G, Cornwall and Akwesasne with each other and with the rest of the world.

This website is the first important step in the development of culture and
arts in the region that will possibly begin to pave the way towards the idea of forming a regional Arts Council in SD&G, Cornwall and Akwesasne.

The website is a very robust tool that will connect cultural and arts activities and businesses in the region with one and other as well as develop the arts and culture sector to help them move forward.

“The launch of the site is very exciting because it will act as a formidable
and powerful tool for growing the business of Culture and Arts in the region. The site will also help grow the artistic and cultural identity in the area and give it the attention it deserves,” says Mr. Davis.

The new website and cultural mapping database was one of the recommendations to come from the Cultural Plan, an extensive document that contains a series of recommendations aimed at furthering cultural development in the Cornwall region.

The Plan also recommends the following:

  • Support the development of an independent Regional Arts Council.
  • Develop policies describing the role of local municipalities in cultural development.
  • Develop the cultural tourism sector and support the development of new tourism experiences that showcase and celebrate culture.
  • Develop an arts and culture facility.
