951 Gladstone, Saturday February 20th, AT 1PM.
The walk will take one hour and end at Gallery 101 for the artist potluck and walk about for THERE'S ROOM, Ottawa Artist's Respond to the Refugee Crisis
Prompted by the refugee crisis, Gallery 101 has invited local artists to reflect on what it means to leave one’s hometown behind and to become part of a new one, the City of Ottawa. Some of the artists in this exhibition were born in Canada and have lived here for years, while others chose to come to this city more recently. Some carry with them recent or long-entrenched memories of traumatic forced migration across many international borders. Together, they create a new unity in the gallery.
Some food and drinks will be provided for this event but please bring a dish if you like!
Gallery 101 gratefully acknowledges the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council (an agency of the Government of Ontario) and the Canada Council for the Arts. Gallery 101 thanks the Asinabka Festival, our members, volunteers, partners, and all our relations.
