Client: City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Team: Randy Engstrom, Elisheba Johnson, Kristen Ramirez
Role: Artist Team
Third Way Creative (3WC) undertook Phase 1 of the Reflection/Inflection Arts Response Project project –from April 2021 to January 2022— to deliver an arts-based report based on our engagement that includes a framework and recommendations for project implementation. As it recovers from the pandemic, Ottawa is poised to retain cultural vibrancy while facilitating new mobility and growth. We have been privileged to work with Ottawa’s vast creative community to retain and magnify its creativity, resiliency, and unique character. The project will result in a series of temporary art installations, the establishment of an Artist in Residence program, and a Legacy project that will center Ottawa’s Host Nations.
