Discover a new way of imagine this place we call Pictou County!
For this project, visiting artist Marlene Creates from Newfoundland invited participants of all ages to share some of their meaningful places in Pictou –– either natural or built –– in order to reveal some of its invisible layers of meaning.
Participants created an award ribbon, which they installed in their chosen spot and a video was taken of their story.
Explore the map found here by clicking on the various blue markers. This map will be updated over the next few weeks with the participants in Marlene’s project happenign June 27-29 2012.
