Stronger Together: Community-Made Banners

May 10 - July 27

Free

Join us for Stronger Together: Community-Made Banners, a group exhibition celebrating common purpose, pride in identity, calls for unity, and demands for respect and dignity of the most vulnerable, in WAHC's Community Gallery.

During our Winter 2024 season, local artists Kate Jackson, Greg Smith and stylo starr facilitated a series of free workshops for WAHC community members to design and create their own banners using photo transfer, couch embroidery, and hand lettering.

In our Community Gallery, community members who participated in these workshops will celebrate this work with a group banner exhibition. These community-made banners demonstrate both individual expression and collective strength. They convey messages of common purpose, pride in identity, calls for unity, and at times, carry demands for respect and dignity of the most vulnerable.

This exhibition is the outgrowth of a workshop series supported by the Ontario Arts Council, and the Province of Ontario.

WAHC acknowledges CUPE National, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the Province of Ontario, the City of Hamilton and OSSTF for their support of our exhibitions and ancillary programs.
