It has been some time since we posted about the Ottawa Live Arts Community Integrated Living & Learning Arts Hub!

This past year we have been working with a Project Manager and together we have met with many different arts groups to discuss their interest in collaboartion.

Based on our meetings, we have developed a preliminary plan for an arts hub with several partner organizations. We hope to see this located within the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation’s Rochester Heights housing re-development when it is built. Our plans and our partnerships will continue to evolve as we move forward.

The unexpected arrival of COVID-19 has of course thrown a wrench into our plans, along with everybody else’s, and we are unsure of the scale of the pandemic’s eventual impact on the arts community.

For the moment, like most business and arts organizations, we are on hold, as is our project, and we expect to remain in this curious limbo for some months at least.

Nonetheless, we are determined to continue to work towards the realization of our vision of an intergrated living and learning arts hub!

We thank you for your interest and support and we sincerely hope that you and your family remain safe and supported during these difficult times.
