The Hamilton Dialogues

The Hamilton Dialogues is a non-profit organization comprised of passionate, everyday people interested in culture, politics and community building.

We believe in the power of conversation to launch amazing projects and initiate change.


Our projects are meant to draw you into conversation about our community, the impact we have on it, and how we can improve it.


We invite community members to be part of the process of public art projects through workshops that strive to teach and engage.

Art Adminstration

We are an arts administration organization. We help artists bring their public work to reality by facilitating the admin process.

deLight Fest

deLight is Hamilton’s ONLY light festival. Started in 2016, we have presented five public light installations all over Hamilton.

Community Cinema

We have a history of bringing international cinema to Hamilton’s Staircase Theatre and the Perkins Centre. We treasure these roots.
