Profile Highlight: Neighbourhood Arts Ottawa | L’Art des quartiers d’Ottawa

As ArtBridges’ Community-Engaged Arts Directory grows, we realize that it’s a bit overwhelming to read through all of the profiles. We’re hoping that by occasionally highlighting some profiles on our blog, you may learn about an initiative that you may not have initially seen in the directory. Also, if you know of a Canadian community-engaged arts for social change initiative that isn’t in our directory, but should be, please let us know! We love and need your input/feedback in building this resource! -Lisa, Content Coordinator at ArtBridges.

Neighbourhood Arts Ottawa, a community-engaged arts program of Arts Network Ottawa, gives artists the opportunity to collaborate with community partners and participants to co-create arts projects, build relationships with community groups, and gain professional development through mentorship experiences, events and symposia. This program connects artists, arts groups, community partners, and supporters across sectors. Community-engaged arts are a proven method for community building, helping individuals feel more connected in their neighbourhoods, inspiring community pride and encouraging continued arts creation participation. The program aims to increase the number of Ottawans who are active producers of art in their communities. This program was made possible with generous support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ottawa Community Foundation.”
