Hello and Welcome to the twelfth annual edition of the Halifax Art Map.

Halifax Art Map is a unique guide to studios and businesses of local artisans, artists and galleries, used by tourists and local art lovers alike. Halifax Art Map profiles the high quality arts and crafts within the Halifax Regional Municipality, and highlights local businesses that support the arts.

In 2013 we will distribute 23,000 Maps. The Map, published in May of 2013, will be distributed to hotels, galleries, studios, visitor information centres, restaurants, the cruise ship pavilion, cultural venues, the airport, train station, conferences, art walks and various locations outside the Region.

A quality, full colour production, the Map offers a limited number of advertising and listing spaces, keyed to a locator map. Advertisement spaces are offered to galleries and other art-related businesses. Listings for artists* display all pertinent contact and location information, a brief artist statement and a full colour image as example of their work. The printed Map is also supported by a website, Facebook page – and new this year: Twitter - and the spring art exhibition, Art Off The Map.
