About us


Headwaters Arts exists to bring together artists and supporters to promote the development, appreciation, and enjoyment of all arts in the Hills of Headwaters Region (Caledon, Dufferin County, Orangeville & Erin)



Headwaters Arts wants to be able to state with confidence that the Hills of Headwaters region is a widely recognized centre for artistic excellence; a location of choice for artists seeking a nurturing, collaborative community. And that the region is a home to residents and businesses that value support and participate in the arts as well as a renowned destination for tourists seeking high quality and fun arts experiences.



We fulfill our mandate by providing artists of all ages and at all stages of their career with greater exposure, sales, networking opportunities, professional development and education. We strive to create opportunities for the community-at-large to enjoy and participate in the arts. Headwaters Arts looks to the future by nurturing the next generation of artists and art lovers. We initiate collaborative marketing efforts to better promote both within and outside our community art produced in the Hills of Headwaters. Some of the ways we do this is by mounting an annual multi-site arts Festival, implementing the Headwaters Arts Youth Scholarship,  providing a monthly art exhibitions at the Headwaters Arts Gallery at the Alton Mill, as well as programming open access multi-level discussion workshops with arts professionals.
