About Us


Centre[3] for Artistic & Social Practice recognizes and acknowledges that we are located on the traditional territories of the Mississauga and Haudenosaunee nations, and within the lands protected by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement.

Located at the heart of Hamilton in Ontario, Centre[3] for Artistic and Social Practice is a not-for-profit, charitable artist-run centre that connects, educates, and collaborates with people on local, regional, national and international levels. We are a place for artists to create, produce and exhibit art work; a platform for artists to engage and empower students through art education; a space for artists to collaborate with our community in a creative experience. Integrating art, education and community, Centre[3] helps establish a progressive identity for our community, while enriching quality of life through art and culture.


Centre[3] for Artistic and Social Practice is dedicated to supporting artists with creation, production, presentation, and dissemination. Centre[3] conducts research, fosters innovation, and provides opportunities for critical discourse. Centre[3] engages with the wider community through social practice, encouraging experimentation and collaboration through contemporary art.

As a not-for-profit centre we’ve established programming to help bring arts education and community arts to the greater Hamilton area. Thanks to donor support our programming is always expanding to meet the needs of the region. We welcome you to get involved!
