Starting in February 2012, the new Hamilton Arts Council blog will include an ongoing series of Member Profiles that will celebrate the work of our member artists and organizations across all disciplines. Member Profiles will be posted here on a bi-weekly basis and will be scheduled wherever possible to ensure equal representation of the range of creative disciplines supported by the Hamilton Arts Council.
Members in good standing interested in being included in this recurring feature are invited to submit their responses to the following questions to firstname.lastname@example.org – please note that the Hamilton Arts Council reserves the right to edit responses for spelling, grammar and clarity before posting your Member Profile to our blog.
1.a) Your Name:
b) Your Website URL (optional):
2. Tell us about your creative practice:
3. What motivates you to live and work in Hamilton?
4. What have you seen or experienced in Hamilton lately that has inspired you?
5. What are you working on right now? Which upcoming project are you most excited about?
In addition to your written responses, members may include up to three images, video and/or audio components as part of their profile in any combination desired (for example, three images, one image and two videos, two audio and one video) provided the total number of images, video and audio is no greater than three.
