Making Culture Count! is the process of developing a comprehensive cultural plan for Qualicum Beach that will integrate and leverage our cultural resources into community planning. This initiative is consistent with the May 2011 OCP Update and is being led by a cultural management consultant supported by municipal staff and a resource group of volunteers representing key community stakeholder groups.
Developing a cultural plan begins with a cultural mapping and scanning process that identifies the Towns' cultural resources and assets (facilities, activities, events, organizations, individuals, etc..) and assessing those resources. Mapping is a systematic approach to identifying, recording and classifying a community's cultural resources. Examples of cultural assets and resources are illustrated in the diagram on the right margin of this page.
