I came to Burlington in a very isolated 2020. Coming from living in Toronto, I was worried about leaving behind the arts community I had built through University and after. Little did I know that Burlington is rich with such a passionate, welcoming and creative community. The EGCC has introduced me to so many wonderful people who love to create, learn, teach and uplift. The support of the Collective and the friendships I’ve found there has been such a beautiful journey. The annual Art Walks, Art Socials and markets have been wonderful experiences, and I look forward to growing with the EGCC for years to come.
