The map was launched on Monday (Oct. 17), the first day of the Creative City Summit here.

“Highlighting the development of Surrey’s Cultural Corridor, the map acts as a geographical online hub where residents and visitors can easily locate public art, heritage sites, cultural venues, event listings and other opportunities to experience the city’s vibrant arts, heritage and culture offerings — all in one convenient spot,” according to a city press release.

A message on the city’s website says this: “We will be adding a new section to the Arts & Culture Map that focuses on Surrey’s cultural organizations. The City of Surrey is interested in having your organization shown on this map.”
