Creative Space

Weekly art and wellness workshops for mental health.

This studio program is designed for youth and adults carrying experiences of mental illness. 

Since 2015, the OAG has partnered with the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre on Creative Space, a program that encourages mental health and social inclusion through weekly drop-in art-making workshops. Now these sessions are offered both in-person and online.

Developed collaboratively by the Ottawa Art Gallery and the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, the program aims to foster holistic wellness by providing multidisciplinary creative exploration in an open and supportive environment.
