Current Special Projects
In partnership with OAG, the Herongate Tenant Coalition (HTC) and artist Daniel Effah are organising a community arts project entitled Create: Herongate.
Members of the Herongate Tenant Coalition and Daniel Effah will be conducting interviews with residents of the neighborhood over the summer months for this purpose.
SANCTUARY MATTERS 2019-20
Sanctuary Matters is a public learning series co-presented by the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) and the Ottawa Sanctuary City Network (OSCN). Recognizing the need for social action and political change amid a global crisis of human displacement, OAG and OSCN are collaborating to present a program of talks, workshops, and other events with an aim to build public awareness and foster a culture of support for newcomers with precarious immigration status in Ottawa and beyond. Sanctuary Matters is funded in part by a grant from the Ottawa Community Foundation.
