What are the Signs of a
DodoLab Wants To Know:
Why is this a sign of a creative city?
There has been much discussion and theorizing recently about what
makes a city or community truly creative. DodoLab would like to SIGN 2
take advantage of the fact that the ICASP Colloquium has brought
together a socially and creatively engaged group who can help us
consider this question in a way that is focused and collaborative.
Our request is simple. While in Guelph for the colloquium and Jazz
Festival, please use this eBook to describe and identify the locations
of four signs of a creative city. Signs could be buildings, design
features, amenities, facilities, even people. We’ve included a map of
the core of Guelph so you can mark your sites there as well. Please Description:
return your eBook to the DodoLab at the Macdonald Stewart Art
Centre at the end of the colloquium on Friday, September 11.
We’ll be using these eBooks as guidebooks to photograph the city
and will be producing a collaborative photo essay that will be made
available online as a slide show and in a series of eBooks that can
be downloaded and shared. We’d appreciate it if you’d include your
name and email address below so we can let you know when the
photo essays are available to view and download. If you forget to
drop off this eBook, please mail it or scan and email it to us at:
