Hamilton’s “One Book, One City: Tackling Poverty Through the Arts” Project

Published on 30/09/2007

Capitalizing on the interest of an earlier city-wide book club, Hamilton Public Library joined forces with Arts Hamilton to encourage residents to read a book about poverty and respond to the issue through some form of artistic expression.  The project’s ultimate success was the creation of a rich tapestry of relationships that will support on an ongoing basis the work of the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction.
