Steel City Stories is an event series and not for profit organization that provides an inclusive platform for Hamiltonians to share stories from their own lives.

The series includes 4-5 storytelling events throughout the year, planned around different themes. Each event features true stories told by people who are from, live in, or are involved with the Hamilton community.

In addition to our storytelling events, we also have community outreach programs with the Immigrant Women’s Centre, Art Forms Youth Studio and Speak Now Hamilton. 

A vibrant and inclusive storytelling culture in Hamilton that strengthens community and enriches relationships.

To provide an inclusive platform for Hamiltonians to share stories from their own lives.
