What’s on and when

Be a mapmaker

Ultimately you are the mapmakers – for the cultural map to develop and grow we need as many people as possible from the creative sector in Dumfries and Galloway to make sure they are listed. The work to set up the project was carried out as part of the Fresh Start initiative and was then taken forward by Dumfries and Galloway Council, DG Unlimited and Creative Scotland – with support from the National Library of Scotland.

For more information, refer to the About Us section of the website.

Using the map

The Cultural Map of D&G is easy to use. You can search using the map itself and focus right down to an individual village or street. Alternatively you can search for types of people or business. You can also search using the name of the person or organisation. Different kinds of entry are also colour coded.
