We chose some favourites of our own, mixed in suggestions from some of the city's best read librarians, and seasoned it all with Russells' repetoire of Canadian classics. Yummy!

A lot to choose from!

Snippet of Canada 150 is part of AOE Arts Council’s Neighbourhood Arts 150, Celebrating Ottawa’s Communities, an official Canada 150 and Ontario 150 community-engaged arts Project.

Neighbourhood Arts 150 is bringing twelve of Ottawa’s most inspiring professional artists and arts groups together with neighbourhoods from all corners of Ottawa to celebrate their communities and express what it means to be Canadian. Ottawans can participate in free arts experiences, from April to October in over 20 communities outside the downtown core. Local youth, seniors, families, newcomers, BIAs, community associations and more are taking part in artist-led activities including dance, theatre, art installations, sculptures, storytelling, puppetry, murals and more in non-traditional venues.

Neighbourhood Arts 150 is supported by Funders: Government of Canada, Ontario 150; and Partners: Ottawa 2017, Community Foundation of Ottawa, Metroland Media, Trinity Development Foundation, the Danbe Foundation and Jewel 98.5 FM, and many community partners.

All are invited to share their Neighbourhood Arts 150 experiences by following and sharing on Facebook Twitter and Instagram: @150ArtsOttawa #150ArtsOttawa. Read artist blog posts, see project descriptions and community partners, and plan your arts experiences using the interactive calendar at www.150ArtsOttawa.ca Neighbourhood Arts 150
