Building Cultural Legacies

Finding and sharing the history of visual arts in Hamilton

The Building Cultural Legacies project will capture and broadly disseminate stories about this history of visual arts in Hamilton, through a collective memory approach. The Ontario Trillium Foundation’s investment will build online, social and exhibition platforms that will share these memories, hold community knowledge, and promote pride and understanding. Building Cultural Legacies will ensure that today’s generation of artists and residents value the significant contributions made by their predecessors, and will set the stage for Hamilton’s continued cultural growth.


The Hamilton Arts Council invites you to join us in celebrating our Ontario Trillium Foundation Grow grant in support of BUILDING CULTURAL LEGACIES

WHEN: Friday March 23, 2018 from6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
WHERE: Redchurch Café + Gallery, 68 King St E., Hamilton

Drew Taylor is a Hamilton-based collage artist. His work is an intuitive process that uses chance and play in an effort to combine and reassemble chimeras and landscapes that reflect the contemporary world in its rapidly shifting realities. DJ Boppa do Down (Tim Hanna) runs the record label Boppa do Down, collects and DJ’s vintage and obscure RocknRoll, R&B, and Soul 45 rpm records.
