RE-CLAIMING NORMAL: HOW DO WE (RE)CONNECT AFTER THE PANDEMIC.
The pandemic has clearly impacted many aspects of our private lives, but how has it affected our city centres and their public spaces?
This is our stepping-off point for a lively night of short investigative presentations touching on topics from visions of new city spaces to psychological states to artistic pursuits and back. Any topic is possible as everything has been, in one way or another, impacted by our experience of the last two years.
Come join us at the Alma Duncan Salon located in the Ottawa Art Gallery! Complimentary snacks will be provided along with a cash bar.
Organizer: Ottawa Regional Society of Architects, Ottawa Architecture Week
