Hamilton Arts Week

Celebrate the arts across your city from June 3-9, 2017



Hamilton Arts Week is an annual civic celebration of the arts that launched in June 2015. In its first year, Hamilton Arts Week saw a busy week of arts events presented by over 50 partnering arts organizations, with awareness driven by an in-kind ad campaign in The Hamilton Spectator and online engagement. In 2016, our second year saw even more community events along with our Opening Launch, the City of Hamilton Arts Awards After Party, and a Closing Celebration.

For 2017, the Hamilton Arts Council is releasing two calls for participation for this year's Hamilton Arts Week. See below for details!


The Hamilton Arts Council invites Hamilton-area artists and arts organizations to participate in the 3rd annual Hamilton Arts Week from June 3-9, 2017. A celebration of the arts in our community, Hamilton Arts Week is a civic movement to encourage widespread cultural engagement in our city among all Hamiltonians. This is your opportunity to reach new audiences and encourage Hamiltonians to engage authentically with the arts in their city and we want to help you!
