Ottawa Art Gallery Receives Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund to Adapt Visitor Service

November 7, 2023

The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) is excited to share the implementation of its latest visitor experience enhancement, made possible by funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). This support has enabled the OAG to supplement its indoor facilities through the installation of a modern digital kiosk to guide visitors.

“Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for supporting our wayfinding kiosk project. This station, which greets the public in Anishinābemowin, English, and French, has allowed us to adapt our service delivery. By providing enhanced information to visitors in a safe and efficient manner, it has eliminated access barriers and addressed evolving needs of our community.”  – Alexandra Badzak, Director, and CEO, Ottawa Art Gallery

The Resilient Communities Fund supports community-based organizations that deliver programs and services in Ontario and need funding to recover and build capacity, resilience, and sustainability. Thanks to the $15,000 grant from OTF, the Ottawa Art Gallery has implemented a state-of-the-art digital information kiosk. Strategically positioned, this kiosk is designed to provide visitors with Gallery information, exhibition locations, and event details in a dynamic and engaging manner upon their arrival onsite.
