At HIP, we’re committed to helping shape a vibrant and confident community that dreams big, stays creative and lives passionately. Check out what we’ve been up to.

Creative... Just Like You

Creativity isn’t exclusive to the Arts. Certainly it’s found there but it’s also found on shop floors, in neighbourhoods, kitchens, boardrooms and schoolyards. It’s in us all, somewhere, even if we don’t always call it creativity. As Waterloo Region, our hard working creative collaboration has, and continues to, generate ideas, talent and outcomes that go far beyond our small place in the World. Check out our video celebrating the creativity that is within us all and unifies our community. When we celebrate that uniqueness we’ll recognize that the Creative Capital of Canada is right all of us.
