City of Mississauga’s Cultural Resource: Mississauga Culture on the Map

May 02, 2012

On May 1, the City of Mississauga's Culture Division hosted the launch of a cultural resource for the city - Mississauga Culture on the Map. The launch took place at Noel Ryan Auditorium, Mississauga Central Library.

"Mississauga Culture on the Map is a one-stop online resource tool for arts and culture in Mississauga," said Susan Burt, director Culture Division. "You can easily view, search and display Mississauga cultural resources, activities and other related topics. I want to thank all of the team members and internal and external culture stakeholders for all of their hard work and dedication to making this initiative a success."

The cultural map contains information such as arts and culture businesses, community cultural organizations, cultural spaces and facilities, public art, heritage properties, festivals and events, local artists and other related cultural resources.

Mississauga Culture on the Map is one of the key recommendations from the five year Culture Master Plan approved by Council in June 2009. For more information visit www.mississauga.ca/portal/discover/artsmasterplan.
