As a network of artists and art enthusiasts, this initiative seeks to incubate and support a thriving creative ecology in Brantford / Brant, which we define as a social space for artists and other creatives that is financially sustainable, gives access to salient resources, and engages new audiences in innovative and thought-provoking ways.
