The Arts Advisory Commission is an appointed body of City Council. Part of its role is to inform
Council of issues in the Hamilton Arts Community. The Commission invites all Hamilton artists to
keep talking about important arts issues at The Big Picture Revisited Arts Forum.
We are looking to the future of our growing arts community. What are its needs?
We want to hear from you!
Join discussion groups to share ideas, and develop action plans about one of three topics:
Engaging City Hall: How does the community best work together?
Sustainability of Arts Organizations: What do arts organizations need?
Support for Individual Artists: How does the community support Individual Artists?
Representatives from other municipalities will be on hand to share their experiences with
forming arts councils, affecting change in municipal government,
and how the needs of arts organizations are changing.
Everyone is invited to participate in an all new 2009 version
of The Big Picture to be snapped at the event.
12:30 p.m. (working lunch) New Zoning...Moving Forward: Al Fletcher from the City of Hamilton
Planning and Economic Development Department will discuss the new Comprehensive
Zoning By-law. We want your input on ways to make City zoning more user-friendly and on
removing obstacles to permit new arts uses in the City.
***Space is limited. Please rsvp by October 26, 2009.***
Please register by telephone or by e-mail.
