Join us for our one and a half day gathering supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and Ottawa Community Foundation that brings together artists and community partners for panel discussions and workshops.
Both segments of the gathering are aimed at providing community-engaged project and career development insight for community members and emerging artists, as well as program development tools for community partners interested in collaborating with local artists.
The gathering will feature several industry experts who will be leading hands-on workshops, round tables and panel discussions on topics relating to community-engaged arts.
