COVID-19 Resources

Thursday, March 19, 2020

The Council is working hard to help the Ottawa arts community in these difficult times. Our offices may be closed, but we are reaching out to the community to listen to your needs, share resources and information we’ve uncovered, and advocate on your behalf.


The Council is partnering with community organizations to host a Facebook group specific to arts workers, for sharing and organizing community resources in Ottawa in response to COVID‑19. Please join us in sharing resources and information in the group. Invite everyone who might benefit from the resources to join, we are stronger together (even if physically apart).
