Great things are happening in arts and culture in Burlington, and people like Selina Eckersall-McCall, founder of No Vacancy and our Arts Person of the Year for 2013, are making them happen.

Watch my video interview with Selina as she explains her dream for arts and culture in Burlington, and the vision behind Cirque, a “contemporary art spectacular”, Fri. Sept. 19, 7pm-2am, in Village Square, downtown Burlington.

Thirty contemporary artists will transform a variety of spaces inside the charming Village Square into a walking multi-artist exhibition, with performance and street art, and a pop-up art market open until midnight.

See you in the Square!!

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.
