Registration is now open for 14 free, unique online sessions in the arts featuring some of Ottawa-Gatineau region’s top professionals. From visual arts and ceramics to creative movement, screenwriting, instrumental music, voice and dramatic arts, these individual sessions are helping meet the clear hunger for inspired virtual connection as the pandemic enters its second year.
“These sessions represent a win-win of sorts, pairing up local arts workers – who have been deeply impacted by not being able to work in traditional venues – with members of the community who, while following the stay-at-home protocols, can still be enlightened and pursue their love of learning through the various artistic disciplines being offered,” says David Globerman, who coordinates the Supporting Cast team at PAL Ottawa, a local charity dedicated to providing affordable housing and supports to senior arts workers in the National Capital Region.
The free programming runs twice a week from February 3 to March 31, Wednesday afternoons at 2 pm and Saturday evenings at 7 pm. They will be recorded and shared later on the PAL Ottawa Youtube channel for those unable to attend the sessions in real time.
