A group, specific to arts workers, for sharing and organizing community resources in Ottawa in response to COVID-19.

This group is intended to bring arts workers together and potentially help address specific concerns we may face as a community. The goal is to organize the local community on the grassroots level and ensure vulnerable community members have access to food, housing, healthcare, and other necessities.

But it goes beyond that to different ways we can support each other as artists during this time. It is a place to post requests for aid or support, as well as a place to share opportunities and resources that may be helpful and supportive.

SURPRISE! We've added an extra event in the ARTPRENEUR 2020 lineup: "Community Conversation: How to Make this Sustainable," 7 pm, November 25!

Earlier in April, folks gathered for a community conversation about the work, challenges, and opportunities of community and socially engaged arts through the pandemic. Fast-forward to 8 months later: We now know a lot more about the impacts of COVID-19 on Ottawa’s cultural sector as well as the communities we collaborate with and serve. Artists, cultural workers, and community organizers continue to work very hard to adapt in the ways they can. And the vital role art plays to connect people and communities through this period of crisis is made clear via projects creatively happening in and around public health guidelines. But how can this work be made sustainable? What are our sector’s needs over the coming year?

Join us for a community conversation and brainstorm framed by artist Kseniya Tsoy’s experience through her most recent Neighbourhood Arts Ottawa project as well as knowledge shared throughout this year’s ARTPRENEUR conference: www.eventbrite.ca/e/artpreneur-conference-2020-day-3-tickets-126300240419

"Community Conversation: How to Make this Sustainable" is co-presented by Arts Network Ottawa / Réseau des arts d'Ottawa's Neighbourhood Arts Ottawa program, which is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ottawa Community Foundation.

Aujourd'hui à 18 heures !Le harcèlement, la discrimination, la violence, les inconduites sexuelles et l’abus de pouvoir ne doivent pas être tolérés dans quelque milieu de travail que ce soit, car ils contribuent notamment à miner l’esprit d’équipe tout en créant un environnement de travail malsain et toxique.

Le milieu des arts et de la culture n’est pas différent.

L'Association des théâtres francophones du Canada - ATFC et Théâtre Action présentent un atelier sur le milieu de travail sain pour les artistes, animé par Geneviève Pineault, le 23 novembre à 18h. Nous sommes fiers de soutenir cet atelier avec Arts Network Ottawa / Réseau des arts d'Ottawa.

It's time for a GIVEAWAY! Tag 3 artists who would benefit from attending ARTPRENEUR 2020 for a chance to win a copy of Leverage the Arts Ecosystem to Influence Local Prosperity by Cate Proctor from Proctor Shift Consulting!

Leverage the Arts Ecosystem to Influence Local Prosperity is a handbook that lifts the veil on subtle but highly influential impacts the arts bring to all communities. Insights support arts advocacy and highlight how the arts bind multiple, intersecting sectors and economies, such as: What attracts artists to your community in the first place? How to construct effective partnerships that holistically support artistic, community and business evolution. Identifying arts ecosystem stakeholders and how they intersect. Strategies that guide partnership and publicity efforts, leveraging universal success. Why shared values, advocacy, and communication are fundamental to the process.

Cate Proctor MBA has a career as a senior arts administrator successfully guiding performing arts venues, arts service organizations, arts cooperatives, and festivals in strategic planning, operations, audience development, fundraising, marketing, and governance initiatives. She purposefully advances financial stability, public engagement, and positive organizational cultures that grow both audiences and arts programming.

In 2020, her consulting practice, Proctor Shift Consulting, published Leverage the Arts Ecosystem to Influence Local Prosperity, a handbook that offers holistic strategies and tactics to guide cultivation of local, asset-based partnerships. At its core, this partnership guide advocates for the germ of the creative that drives the ecosystem – the artist.

She co-authored the Arts and Culture Chapter for the Alternative Federal Budget (2020), published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. She is Vice-President of Arts Consultants Canada, Co-Chair of Mass Culture’s Research Working Group, and Regional Alliance Representative (Ontario East) for ArtsPond’s national DigitalASO project.

403 Forbidden is a digital exhibition that is seeking contributions from artists across all disciplines who are exploring and/or critiquing the way identity and ownership are maintained and negotiated in digital spaces.

As we spend more time online, we become more efficient in critically navigating a domain of blurred boundaries. In this space, we come to realize that the “intellectual property” connected to our 2-dimensional avatars is no longer ours -- forfeited as a result of fine prints and End-User License Agreement that claim ownership of that dimension of our personhood. Here, the Internet sheds its illusion as a democratic entity and becomes a space that is mediated through corporate intervention and the State, who hold sway over which content gets distributed and socialized, and how.

How can we define ownership in a space where concepts like privacy are becoming abstract? How do we claim ownership of our likeness, cognitive property, and creative outputs which are accessible to the virtual public?

Alternatively, how do we mediate the grey area/space of restriction -- through the use of paywalls, copyright laws, takedown notices etc. -- where tools like VPNs are used to circumvent these restrictions? Can these tactics relate to the physical claim of ownership? Can a comparison be drawn between a physical symbol of ownership like the fence and that of the Internet?

BREAKING OPERA NEWS - A NEW OPERA COMPANY IN OTTAWA!

"NEW OPERA LYRA" - formally announced today by its Board of Directors.

As the brand-new non-profit opera production wing of Ager Productions Inc., "NEW OPERA LYRA" will, as the name implies, provide a stage for new and classic operatic works while building on the great artistic heritage of Opera Lyra Ottawa, which ceased operations in 2015. Why establish a brand new opera company in a time when productions are paused? - We want to be ready for the big return. We will be offering ways to support "NEW OPERA LYRA" over the next while and are making plans for exciting virtual performances this season. We are looking forward to this opportunity to present new and classic works to Ottawa's diverse and vibrant opera community.
"NEW OPERA LYRA" functions under the legal title of 11925059 Canada Association, and is a registered arts-oriented non-profit incorporation. While building on the legacy of Opera Lyra Ottawa, it is a new enterprise with no financial or legal relation to OLO.

Here is the third painting I completed during the pandemic in late June. 16" x 20" Oil on canvas titled "Still". This came about from another group:"Art in Canada", where the admins started posting daily prompts to inspire artists during the pandemic. One of the prompts was "Still", to which artists were posting artworks depicting very calm, quiet scenes. However, the first thing that popped into my head was an old bootlegger somewhere out in the back country, standing next to his still and homemade "hooch". ...

This second edition of the PAINTDROP COMMUNITY ART PROJECT was a bit more spontaneous than the one I hosted in my driveway.
Since we had fewer appointments booked, Suzanne, Carmel, Solange and I decided to open up the paint throwing to passersby by bringing some of our own leftover house paint. And throw they did!
Since less people chose to dribble the paint on the board while it was flat and more people chose throwing against the propped up board the visual aspect is quite different this time. There are more splashes and lines of dripping paint.
Throwing paint at full force was cathartic not only for the throwers but for the onlookers as well.
We appreciate the NECTAR for giving us the space to bring this project to the New Edinburgh neighbourhood and Arts Health Network for covering the costs of the materials.2nd Edition July 3rd

Nous sommes ravis de nous associer à Artscape sur #ArtsUNITE, une plateforme d'orientation et de soutien conçue pour la communauté des créateurs, par la communauté des créateurs.

L'abondance des ressources, des occasions et des soutiens offerts aux artistes pour les aider pendant et après la Covid-19 peut devenir décourageante.

Nous invitons les membres de la communauté artistique à soumettre leurs propres contenus au site Web, qui peut comprendre n'importe quoi, comme des ressources, du financement, des possibilités de travail rémunéré et des événements ou programmes culturels.
