Serving the Arts in Ottawa for 30 Years
AOE Arts Council believes that the Arts help build strong, vibrant communities.
We are a bilingual, multidisciplinary service organization working actively in the community to champion the arts in the Ottawa region – and an essential connection to opportunities and resources.
Our work is guided by these principles:
- Respect for artists
- Engagement with community
- Integrity and accountability
AOE Arts Council recognizes that the City of Ottawa is located on unceded Algonquin Anishinabe Territory. We also acknowledge the diversity of its residents and respect both official languages.
Ottawa is a dynamic cultural capital where the practice of art is meaningful and contributes positively to the development of the city and the quality of life of its citizens.
To connect, champion and collaborate to bring resources together that build a thriving Ottawa arts community.
By 2020, our arts service organization is at the heart of a vibrant, diverse and thriving Ottawa arts scene.
