ARTASIA is a multi-faceted city-wide visual arts project that takes place in Hamilton Ontario. We partner witheducation and community organizations to bring high quality visual arts programming to 18 sites across the city of Hamilton through July and August.
We are founded on 5 pillars: art, education, environmentalism, civic engagement and innovation, and 2 principles: children’s voices and seeing potential. ARTASIA is based on the belief that creativity is important to development, and that the visions and ideas of children have the right to be seen and heard, and are vital to healthy communities. We reach approximately 500 children in July and August, share their work in multiple ways including a large-scale art exhibition that will take place at Supercrawl and travel throughout the year.
