The dialogue we started around Arts Education in Hamilton at our inaugural Committee meeting took a step further into the public sphere last week with our appearance on Cable 14‘s ‘Culture by the Minute’. Hosted by Stephanie Seagram from the freshly rebrandedCobalt Connects and a member of our aforementioned committee, the conversation allowed us to build an even wider awareness of the need for equal access to Arts Education for all students in Hamilton. We were also able, in the world’s fastest fifteen minutes, to celebrate the achievements of Hamilton arts organizations that are working to foster that equal access, represented by our co-panelist Pat Gough from CORE Hamiltonand a visit with Matt McInnes at The Print Studio.
Thanks again to Stephanie and Pat for a great conversation! The Arts Education Committee’s next meeting will take place in April depending on the schedules of our hard-working team; feel free to get in touch with us with any questions or comments about this or other committees of the Hamilton Arts Council.
