The Design Annex is a creativity lab where experimental exhibitions are mounted and intimate performances staged, complemented by an exciting home and office Art + Design Store and versatile venue rental space.

Located at 118 James Street North in a beautifully restored 19th century heritage building, the AGH Design Annex provides an alternate venue for AGH programming and events that is unique in Hamilton.
