Socrates: Gathering of Art, Gentrification, and Economic Development (GAGED): A Punlic Forum for Hamilton
Nov 9, 2018 to Nov 10, 2018, 10:00AM to 4:00PM
Location: Spice Factory

Hamilton’s recent renaissance and the corresponding “revitalization” of the core have produced a new set of challenges for the city and its residents.

This two-day forum, including speakers, discussions and working groups, convened by McMaster University doctoral student Angela Orasch, will bring together stakeholders from across different sectors to share views and grapple with these challenges. The Gathering will feature installations and performances by local artists addressing the issues at hand and the role of artists in urban development

The forum is intended to launch a year-long working group, using a compilation of actionable items, policy suggestions, and calls for research that can loop back into the McMaster community, to examine the links between art, gentrification, and economic development in Hamilton.

Speakers, schedule, and registration to follow. More information at gagedhamilton.com

Presented in partnership with Centre[3] for Print and Media Arts.
