2015 WINNERS: Ron & Donna Patterson

The Incite Foundation for the Arts Award, which is administered by the Art Gallery of Hamilton, was created to recognize the significant contributions made by individuals and organizations who exemplify outstanding leadership and passion in advancing the arts in the Greater Hamilton Region.

The Incite Foundation for the Arts was established in 2011 and is managed by a small group of leaders in Hamilton's cultural community. Its name is both a call to action and a reflection of the Foundationís guiding principle to incite or spur Hamiltonians to get involved and rebuild the spirit and enthusiasm for culture and the arts in the city.

The Foundation has supported program excellence and creativity in a number of performing and visua arts organizations in Hamilton by contributing to their financial stability and providing opportunities for children and young people to experience the joy of the performing and visual arts. Organizations that have benefitted include the AGH, Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, An Instrument for Every Child, The Hamilton All Star Jazz Band, The Dundas Valley School of Art, Theatre Aquarius, The Royal Botanical Gardens and the Hamilton Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.
