Simon Orpana and Matt McInnes conducted interviews and focus groups with people who lived in the remarkable neighbourhood of Brightside, which lies under what is now the Stelco lands. They have been connecting stories with mapping methods to re-animate our memories of this key neighbourhood in Hamilton’s history. Some of their work was featured at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery in 2018.

Work from Matt McInnes was featured in The Agnes Jamieson Gallery. Click on the image above to read more about the Brightside Neighbourhood Project and get a closer look at Matt’s images.

Currently, the exhibit Notes from the Brightside Project can be viewed at the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre gallery until February 14, 2020.
