About the Cause – Celebrate and Support Local Arts
AOE Arts Council’s popular annual event returns for its ninth year. The event attracts over 300 artists, art lovers, business and community leaders who come together to celebrate AOE Arts Council activities on behalf of Ottawa’s artists and arts organizations.

AOE Arts Council has been working with Ottawa’s Arts Community for close to 30 years to build a vibrant and sustainable sector. As a dynamic, bilingual arts service organization, we connect, champion, and collaborate to bring resources together that build a thriving Ottawa Arts Community. We do this by:
-    Creating opportunities for local artists and arts groups
-    Offering 40 programs, workshops, and events each year
-    Providing promotional reach, professional development, and resources for artists
-    Providing an informed voice for the Arts
-    Representing over 400 members in all disciplines and at all levels of practice
-    Offering opportunities for thousands of residents to engage with the arts each year

Together, we can meet AOE Arts Council’s $40,000 goal to fund opportunities for local artists and to support Ottawa’s vibrant arts community.
