Art Tent To Go at the Annie Pootoogook Park

Art Tent To Go at the Annie Pootoogook Park

Sunday, November 7, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

The Art Tent will be at Annie Pootoogook Park (250 Somerset St. East) on Nov. 7 at 1 pm to celebrate Annie Pootoogook and International Inuit Day!

Join us for the official naming of the Annie Pootoogook Park as we celebrate the unique culture, language, identity and way of life of the Inuit.

OAG Art Tent is a mobile pop-up art studio that frequents festivals in the Ottawa/Gatineau region. This year, instead of creating together, we’ll be handing out FREE Beaded Turtle kits for you to make at home! We’ve also created something special inspired by Annie Pootoogook’s artworks on display in Sheltered in Place at the OAG until Nov. 7.

See you at the park!
