This project is part of the E-lounge presentations at the Atlantic Cultural Space: New Directions in Heritage & the Arts Conference to be held in Moncton, New Brunswick May 23 – 26, 2002. EMMEDIA in Calgary and the E-lounge conference facility at the University of Moncton will serve as stationary communication points in the compacted journey east by the two Calgary Artists. While travelling, LeBlanc and Dugas will be touching down to converse with people in major Canadian Centres. Interviews will be streamed to both the Moncton and Calgary locations; visitors to EMMEDIA and the E-lounge at the University of Moncton will contribute to conversations revolving around the cultural characteristics and benefits of living in particular urban locations. Participants in Calgary and Moncton will be invited to guess the locations of the street interviews. Other Centres involved in the project will be announced after the journey has carried LeBlanc and Dugas to their New Brunswick destination. This website will be updated before, during and after the events of this UNESCO event.
