Calling all residents, especially those who live, work or play in Hammond! The Hammond Community Centre (HCC) is undergoing a renovation that will provide exterior and interior upgrades and include public art. The Artist Team has been selected, but we need your help to inspire the artists with Hammond's spirit, story and history as they develop their art proposal.
The Hammond Community Centre Renovation project will provide exterior and interior upgrades to the Centre that was approved by Council as part of the Parks, Recreation & Culture (PRC) Infrastructure enhancements for the community. The Hammond renovation is a place to add public art to highlight the heritage value and character-defining elements as per the Hammond Area Plan and build a greater sense of place using the exterior metal shingles/tiles approved for the building.
