Join us on the second Friday in June (just before the Art Crawl downtown gets into full swing). The Creative Exchange Networking Event will be held in concert with the Hamilton 24 ( The HAMILTON24 was founded in the Spring of 2008 as Hamilton’s own 24-Hour Film Festival. The idea was simple: to hold a fun, community-enhancing event in which filmmakers would produce short films within a 24-hour period and then screen them publicly. This festival is now into it’s 5th year and is still going strong!

Hamilton Artists Inc-The Wardens-Heather Goodchild
The Wardens is a nondenominational organization started in the late nineteenth century by Anna Ward Brouse. Her early history is vague but it is believed that she was born in Berlin, Ontario (now Kitchener) in 1855. Anna travelled to Pennsylvania as a youth and at the age of twenty-three she was struck by visions depicting a society of outcasts in sixteenth century Germany. Moved by the beauty, strength and wisdom of these long dead people, Anna revealed their practices and beliefs to a growing society of her own.
Also Create for Creation’s Sake – Valerie Cousens, Lisa Hind, and Louise Williams
