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.

What does your URL say about you? Websites and social media allow artists of all kinds to forge emotional connections with audiences through cables and wires crisscrossing the globe. Navigating the information superhighway can be challenging, which is why Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO) is offering a roadmap. April 14 at 5:30 PM, we invite you to "MOVE IT ONLINE," a free workshop in the Art Business Skills for the New Normal series.

We welcome creatives of all disciplines to join artists Donia Al-Issa, Theland Kicknosway, and Jordan David (JFUN) in a clinic dedicated to crafting a compelling digital presence.

REGISTER NOW: www.eventbrite.ca/e/art-business-skills-for-the-new-normal-tickets-138464845079

Due to projected registration, we will prioritize immigrant, refugee, Indigenous, Black, and artists of colour, first come, first serve. This event will be conducted in English and will include facilitators who speak French and Spanish available to give language support.

Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO) Network's Ottawa chapter is represented by Arts Network Ottawa, The Multicultural Artists' Coalition, and MASC.

This project was made possible thanks to funding from Ontario Arts Council - Conseil des arts de l'Ontario.

Hey all. I've got a project i'm starting to get going and i figured some people here might be interested. If this is the wrong place for this, feel free to delete it.

I don't know about other folks, but i find it extremely hard to keep at my creative practices on my own. So i'm setting up online, weekly, social creativity time. Some time to work togeather, accountable to not just ourselves but each other.

Nobody needs to work togeather, or come to every one, or share their work. My focus is usually visual art, so there'll likely be some life-drawing most sessions. If only for the first few minutes, to loosen up and get into an art space. Either based on people that come volunteering to model, or pulling up videos online to draw from.

The timing will be: Mondays at 6:30, and Tuesday to Friday at 2. For approximately 1 hour.

So far it's been held on discord, but if there are enough people, as a group we could chip in for a zoom account that doesn't cut out early.

If anyone's interested, hit me up!

Deadline March 26 | Date limite mars 26Le français suit

Arts Network Ottawa is pleased to launch the Cultural Venue Recovery Project with funding from the City of Ottawa. This vital Project will focus on building community capacity in non-City owned spaces by offering access to interior air quality expertise for community arts and culture venues in need of COVID-19 technical assistance to re-open and recover.

"We all want to see people back safely in our cultural spaces, participating and experiencing art. This project will provide guidelines for venues and spaces to implement basic changes to their HVAC systems and physical infrastructure that will allow further protection to artists, audiences, and workers,” states Cassandra Olsthoorn, Arts Network’s executive director.

Maxime Brunet has joined the team at Arts Network as Special Project Coordinator and will lead this initiative. Maxime has worked in the music industry as a live sound engineer and tour manager for 10 years and has worked extensively in venues in both Ottawa and Toronto as well as touring internationally with a variety of artists.

The project will also use the service of technical-engineering specialists in indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation. Cultural venues and sites to be accessed will be approved by an Advisory Committee. To support the cultural sector City-wide a public report and list of recommendations will be available that can be applied across a variety of spaces, looking at a variety of sizes, capacities, and operating models.

Geographically, this project will consider cultural venues within the territorial limits of the amalgamated City of Ottawa, and that the primary beneficiaries of the services and programmes will be the residents of the City of Ottawa, members of the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation, and members of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. Final research and recommendations will be released once the project has wrapped up by June 2021.

By providing support for the improvement and well-being of community cultural spaces and facilities, Arts Network aims to get artists, musicians, and technicians working and venues welcoming audiences back again.

Arts Network Ottawa gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the City of Ottawa.

Le Réseau des arts d’Ottawa est heureux de lancer le Projet de rétablissement des espaces culturels grâce à un financement de la Ville d’Ottawa. Ce projet essentiel sera axé sur le renforcement des capacités communautaires dans des espaces qui n’appartiennent pas à la ville en offrant un accès à une expertise en matière de qualité de l’air intérieur à des sites communautaires du domaine des arts et de la culture qui ont besoin d’une aide technique en raison de la COVID-19, une aide pour rouvrir et récupérer.

« Nous voulons tous voir les gens retourner de façon sécuritaire dans nos espaces culturels, participer à la vie culturelle et vivre des expériences artistiques. Ce projet fournira des lignes directrices pour les sites et les espaces pour que l’on puisse apporter des changements de base à leurs systèmes CVC et leur infrastructure physique qui permettront de renforcer la protection des artistes, des auditoires et des travailleurs », indique Cassandra Olsthoorn, directrice exécutive du Réseau des arts d’Ottawa.

Maxime Brunet s’est jointe à l’équipe du Réseau des arts à titre de coordonnatrice de projets spéciaux et elle dirigera cette initiative. Maxime a travaillé dans l’industrie de la musique comme ingénieure du son en direct et comme directrice de tournée pendant 10 ans et elle a beaucoup travaillé dans différents sites, tant à Ottawa qu’à Toronto. Elle a également participé à des tournées internationales avec divers artistes.

Le projet fera également appel aux services de spécialistes en mise au point technique dans le domaine de la qualité de l’air intérieur (QAI) et en ventilation. Les espaces et les sites culturels auxquels nous aurons accès seront approuvés par un comité consultatif. Afin de soutenir le secteur culturel à travers toute la ville, un rapport public ainsi qu’une liste de recommandations seront disponibles. Ce rapport et ces recommandations pourront être appliqués à une variété d’espaces, de différentes tailles, avec différents rôles et modèles opérationnels.

D’un point de vue géographique, ce projet tiendra compte d’espaces culturels qui se situent à l’intérieur des limites territoriales de la ville fusionnée d’Ottawa, et les principaux bénéficiaires des programmes et services seront les résidents de la ville d’Ottawa, les membres de la Première nation algonquine de Pikwàkanagàn et les membres de la Première nation Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg.

Les recherches et les recommandations finales seront publiées une fois que le projet sera terminé, d’ici au mois de juin.
En fournissant un soutien pour l’amélioration des installations et des espaces cultuels communautaires, le Réseau des arts d’Ottawa veut aider les artistes, les musiciens et les techniciens à retourner au travail et permettre aux espaces et sites culturels d’accueillir des auditoires à nouveau.

Le Réseau des arts d’Ottawa tient à remercier la Ville d’Ottawa pour le soutien financier apporté à ce projet.

Artists celebrate announcement regarding CERB eligibility

Visual artists across Canada appreciate the tremendous work that the Federal Government has done to help our citizens in a time of great need. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a devastating global crisis, and the government’s swift leadership and response has been remarkable.

For several weeks, we have joined artist unions and associations to advocate for change, and all of us at CARFAC are relieved by the Government’s announcement on February 9th: that self-employed individuals who applied for CERB and would have qualified based on their gross income will not be required to repay the benefit, provided they also met all other eligibility requirements as provided here: www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/ei/cerb-application.html

Some details on this announcement are available here: www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/news/2021/02/government-of-canada-announces-targeted-interest-rel...

We are sure there will be further information to come. We know that some outstanding issues may still exist, but news on this change in policy will provide a solution, and offer peace of mind, to the majority of artists that we have heard from on this issue. We thank the Government for listening to our concerns and making changes that will assist many artists from coast to coast to coast.

We both saw JULY TALK in 2014 for the first time at RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest! We didn't know who they were, but after that show we became fans; it was a sick show! I just remember non stop singing and Leah from July Talk crushing a bottle of wine lmao and Peter being a badass with his voice; crowd went wild. Since then we've seen July Talk 8-10 more times either in Ottawa, Toronto, or livestreams! Hope to come on stage with July Talk one day to play this song!

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.

ARTPRENEUR 2020 is presented by Arts Network Ottawa / Réseau des arts d'Ottawa in partnership with Wallack's Art Supplies, Invest Ottawa, SHIFTER Agency, and media partner Apt613. Sponsored by Edwards Creative Law, Patrick Gordon Framing Studio, Ottawa Business Journal, House of Common / Maison de la commune, and Proctor Shift Consulting.

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?
