Hello ACCOB membership,
It’s with delight that we release this update on ACCOB’s this past Spring/Summer. While we continue to advocate in regular meetings with the City of Burlington, we have decided to step things up: we are currently incorporating (as a non-profit charitable status) as the Arts and Culture Council of Burlington. Our presence in Burlington will spur forward cultural involvement and investment as we see the key pieces of the Cultural Action Plan receive its support from the City.

We are now in discussions on further funding with the Ontario Arts Council and will be seeking out subcommittee volunteers to help raise the profile of Arts in Burlington. We’d also like to thank the Halton HIVE(901 Guelph LIne) for its support of our work. We look forward to contributing to a vibrant local arts and culture scene.

Board: Andrea Battista, Trevor Copp, Ancilla Ho-Young, Donna Grandin, Robert J Mayor Jr., Robert Missen, Tim Park, Jim Riley, Kim Verrall
