Maps have a long history as tools of power. With them, conquerors and kings claimed and named territories, erased populations and identities; planners and developers reshape cities. Scholars of cartography, community organizers, and cultural planners have learned to engage communities in participatory asset mapping to re- assert control over identity, meaning, and futures of their communities. As a foundational practice of cultural planning, cultural asset mapping is a critical skill for future cultural leaders. Through the practice they can identify shared values, understand multiple cultural dimensions of place, and take stock of stories and meaning. Map making can also be a participatory creative practice led by artists. This presentation reviews how creative cultural asset mapping techniques enable and empower leaders to better understand and engage the communities in which they live and work. A case study of an artist-led cultural mapping project in Massachusetts illustrates techniques to involve communities, find new ways to appreciate the diversity of cultures present, and contribute to building stronger communities.
