The fourth Go North! art celebration rolls out Saturday with a quirky map highlighting the studios, galleries and performances taking part this year.

Every possible play on the word ‘north’ is used to make the legend on this map useful: Olde North, Northbound, Central North, North of North, Far North. Cranky Alfred Hitchcock fans could argue for a North by Northwest category, but that would probably just encompass Canada Post’s Almon Street parking lot.

The existing five geographical districts do the job just fine.

Pick up your own copy of the map between 12 and 6 p.m. tomorrow at the BusStop Theatre, at 2203 Gottingen Street. The full schedule for the day contains information about several hands-on workshops, guided tours and live performances. All stops on the tour are free.

Two of the five Go North! tours available.
