#GivingTuesday is a day when we are all encouraged to give to our favourite not-for-profit organizations and charities. This year on Tuesday, December 1st, we are asking you to consider giving to the Hamilton Arts Council. We’re so proud of all the work the HAC has accomplished in 2015 and with your help we look forward to supporting, advocating and celebrating the arts in Hamilton in 2016.
Here are a few of our highlights from 2015:
- Successfully advocating for a $500,000 increase in the City of Hamilton’s funding for the arts
- First Annual Hamilton Arts Week in June with our Arts Awards After Party!
- The LivingArts Hamilton project and its first Symposium this past October was an important artistic professional development initiative for local artists
How can you help?
- Make a donation on #GivingTuesday to the Hamilton Arts Council and let others know you made a gift by using the #GivingTuesday hashtag and tagging @HamArtsCouncil
- Help us spread the word about the Hamilton Arts Council over social media: #GivingTuesday @HamArtsCouncil
- Renew your membership or become a member today and join us at our annual HAC Holiday Party on Giving Tuesday December 1 at the Gasworks.
- Support Hamilton’s artists by attending the 22nd Annual Literary Awards on December 8 at Theatre Aquarius.
We invite you to join the #GivingTuesday movement and to help get out the give this December 1st. Thank you to all of our members, partners, donors and sponsors for ongoing support. Together we will continue to strengthen the role of the arts in the City of Hamilton by making the arts accessible to our entire community.
