The Art Gallery of Burlington mentoring program is one of five finalists for the Hamilton Spectator’s Change Challenge Grant of $25,000. You can vote online up to five times per day until Nov. 30 to help AGB win the grant.

About the program:

The AGB is launching a mentoring program for high school students with an interest in an art-related career. The grant will allow students to enroll in the program at no cost, reaching kids who would not otherwise be able to afford it. In a 12-week session, students will learn to develop a portfolio and participate in the curation and installation of an exhibition while being mentored by the gallery’s chief curator and other artists.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
