Workers Arts & Heritage Centre
51 Stuart Street, Hamilton, Ontario L8L 1B5
Through a conference and artist projects running March 23-25, 2018, Art & Social Strata will address the formal, political and ethical dimensions of socially and politically-engaged art practices.

Motivated by increasingly precarious working conditions, rising levels of student debt, and profound systemic inequality, the program seeks to critically reflect on the relation between social stratification and contemporary cultural production.
