And why are the horses blue..well to us it is simple…. we are not to be defined by colour..so we made everyone blue..and the blue horses are the people who think in the creative inclusion of the herd mentality. That everyone will take a turn leading and following. And that we are more that white or red or brown or yellow…we are the colouring box..full of all shades.. but there are no blue horses…so a common thread is what they are. BLUE
A connected Wayfinder ART & digital social tourism project that will move people along the HIGHWAYS and RURAL COMMUNITIES of British Columbia and invite the Globe to come see the art of the locals. The project has the intent to share cultures, knowledge, skills and talents, while building partnerships and strategic alliances, while leaving a rural community connected tourism experience. This experience includes grassroots and urban connections, as we must close the digital and rural/urban divides to form the creative economy model. Digital art is content and content building and innovation is leading the creative resource economy. Bringing this in a bridge of shared assets and resources can only lead to a combined path forward for all.
The arts are the conversation of humanity. Through them, our aspirations, our imaginative spirit, our creativity, our values and our voice is spread, like a canvas, upon the ever-expanding horizon of our collective consciousness.
AR:TRoute Blue Wayfinder ART MAPP Project is a global conversation that will support positive cultural connectivity, diversity, well-being, socio-economic, citizenship and human striving through creatively connecting the parallel creative commonalities of people in rural communities.
Sharing common ground and cultural landscape expressed through Community Art in a common ground
The project will seek out hidden hand to land creative talent and bring together the power of true ancient creative talent.
The shared learning, knowledge and creative collections will leave a highway legacy creative tourism tool.
