Calling all high school students passionate about the arts. The art curator programming being offered by the Art Gallery of Burlington will help you explore work and education options in the arts. You will help curate an exhibition and get to work with other teens and some great local artists. This is FREE but space is limited and you MUST register. See the North BurLINKton Teens Page for more information.

In 2014 a group of North BurLINKton folks were talking about how it would be great to have a talent show that featured some of our Dinner Night Out guests, Chill Zone kids and others for the North Burlington area. A real spot light of our sometimes hidden talents. A chance to shine for others.
Then in August Burlington experienced a flood and the North BurLINKton Community Group decided to turn the talent show idea into a fundraiser to help support our friends and neighbours who were struggling to recover from the flood.
The event was a night to remember. MM Robinson supplied the space and some of its well know talent (Improv Team and the Drum Line) and many other local people stepped up to the mic and shared their talent. It was an extraordinary night in community.
After the buzz form the night had worn off, we asked ourselves, would we ever do that again – it was a lot of work! The answer was easy – YES!
It was decided that we would host the event again this time fundraising to support North BurLINKton Dinner Night Out’s Christmas Dinner. The annual event serves about 330 people turkey dinner with all the trimmings each December.
So, mark your calendars for Thursday November 26th, for North BurLINKton’s Got Talent, the 2015 edition! We will have line up of MM Robinson High School students and a group of local artists ready to entertain us and bringing us together for a night in community – not to be missed!
One of North BurLINKton Community Groups strategic priorities for the next three years is to learn more about our neighbourhoods and the people in them. We are please to present a new initiative that will give you the opportunity to connect with neighbours and explore our neighbourhoods… a photowalk. The first photo walk will take place on Tuesday September 15th from 6 – 8 pm. The walk starts at Brant Hills Library and will make its way through parks, by businesses and residential streets in Brant Hills. Those who participate need to bring a camera – doesn’t have to be a fancy one; it can be on your phone! The walk leader, a member of the North BurLINKton Arts Committee, will guide you along the walk where you will stop as a group to capture spaces and moments and compare how you all saw the situation a little differently through your individual lens.
