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.
