  1. Hi! I am the new sales & marketing manager for the Lincoln Alexander Centre at 160 King St. E Hamilton! I would love to be able to open the LAC to host musicians and artists for Art Crawl! Let’s get the Crawl spreading down the city!!! let me know how we here at LAC can get involved!
    thanks! Stephanie

  2. Hamilton holds a pretty close place to my heart, as I spent 4 years there while studying at McMaster, and I’d love to help contribute to this website. I run a photography blog myself and I’d love to come down to Hamilton again to explore and take some great photos to contribute to the blog!
