HMC is pleased to continue our partnership with the John and Ellie Voortman Charitable Foundation, which has generously provided AIFEC’s headquarters, The Gasworks at 141 Park Street North, Hamilton.
The Gasworks is a cultural hub and collaborative space for the arts in Hamilton’s downtown core committed to enabling and accelerating the valuable work of the foundation’s partner organizations. The John and Ellie Voortman Charitable Foundation actively works with local charities and other initiatives that share a similar objective of strengthening our community, especially for youth and the arts.
The 2020 renovation by TCA Architects has opened up many new opportunities to engage Hamilton’s musical community and comes complete with performance and rehearsal spaces, teaching spaces, a professional recording studio and office.
The space is now home to many of our advanced programs such as our new Music for Wellness program, Jambassadors, and our free music lessons.
Jazz at The Gasworks
Having wrapped up its fourth successful season in the spring of 2018, this intimate and exciting monthly concert series features internationally-renowned artists in a series of fundraising concerts in support of AIFEC. All proceeds from ticket sales support AIFEC’s programs. Book your tickets early as the concerts are typically sold-out, in response to consistently great reviews from local media such as the Hamilton Spectator and Hamilton Magazine.
