For Educators

Resources to help you learn, explore and create.

Building Cultural Legacies provides a space for students and teachers to explore Hamilton’s rich creative history. Here, you will find a lesson plan and toolkit to guide educators through a prepared in-class workshop.

Our first workshop, ‘Changemakers’, teaches visual literacy techniques through an exploration of key figures that shaped the visual arts landscape in Hamilton between 1950-2000.
