The City of Hamilton Culture Division and the Arts Advisory Commission invite you to a public consultation session to discuss the Hamilton Arts Awards.
The City of Hamilton Arts Awards are awarded to practicing artists in the Hamilton area in recognition of their significant contributions in a chosen discipline.
The Arts Awards have been presented annually since 1976 and are organized by the Culture Division with the assistance of the Arts Advisory Commission, a City Council appointed volunteer committee, whose mandate, in part, is to select and recommend the annual winners of the Hamilton Arts Awards.
The Culture Division received Council approval in spring 2009 to suspend the 2009 City of Hamilton Arts Awards program and reallocate the funds to undertake an Arts Awards Program Review.
The arts community in the city has grown and changed significantly in the last decade and this review will ensure that the Arts Awards are effective in promoting the arts and achievements of local artists. The Culture Division is proposing to present a renewed City of Hamilton Arts Awards Program in fall 2010.
After an open call for consultants to work on this review, Jeremy Freiburger of the Imperial Cotton Centre for the Arts, will lead the evening and will provide an opportunity for all interested citizens to share their thoughts on improving the Hamilton Arts Awards.
If you are unable to attend the consultation, a downloadable short questionnaire is available on our website (click "City of Hamilton Arts Awards Review") so you can still provide us with your thoughts on this important event.
