September 26 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

You are invited to a Culture Days in-person event:
An Unexpected Intersection: Soap Meets Poop

Location: Front yard at Nectar, New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre

255 MacKay Street

Date and time: September 26, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Rain-date: Saturday October 3, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

See some art, wash your hands with Soap Poop, and start a conversation about the effects poop has on
Climate Change.

Visual artist Maria Gomez Umana has created hand soap that looks an awful lot like… poop! She will
show you her collection, invite you to wash your hands with it, and to take home a sample. The soappoop
proved surprisingly inspirational to other artists; Beth Shepherd took some soap-poop and
photographed it at different locations along Ottawa’s urban water system. She will show and discuss her
series of images. Rene Price brings in an artwork that he really wants to see in a hardware store’s
plumbing department.
