Incoming! A project for refugee, newcomer and immigrant artists

A project for refugee, newcomer and immigrant artists.

Incoming! is a project for refugee, newcomer and immigrant artists. Our aim is to inform, support and connect working artists in Hamilton. We hope to encourage and provide resources to help refugees and immigrants expand their existing artistic careers, both in Hamilton and across Canada. This project includes two professional practice workshops, a networking event and an art exhibition.

All programs are free and take place at Hamilton Artists Inc. (155 James St. N., Hamilton).
