INTERPRETIVE DESIGN CONSULTANT
EDG Experience Design Group Inc.
John Gray OC
Along with our partners EDG and author John Gray, our firm was responsible for creating the public interpretive master plan, content and the management of the fabrication and installation of interpretive panels installed on the promenade walkway celebrating unique Canadians and the events that shaped this country from coast to coast. Each story is based on local history and events that are not well known to the average visitor. The concept around this interpretive program was to take guest on a voyage across Canada where they meet some of our regions most colourful individuals and their contributions to Canada’s rich tapestry. Rather than telling National history lessons our approach focused in on a regional story telling traditions focused on letting guests encounter the true story around the tales of old, ranging from Coleman’s Frog in New Brunswick to the legend of the Sour Toe Cocktail in the Yukon.
