What is 613U?


Welcome to 613u, a companion site to Apt613.ca, an award-winning website that highlights the best of arts and culture in the National Capital Region. Our team of volunteer bloggers come from the community they write about. Our mission is to provide an online space that builds connections in the real world. Whether you write for us, follow us on social media, or visit our site, we hope we’ve helped bring you closer to the place where you live.

The 613u initiative builds on Apt613.ca by providing a new forum for online community engagement. The mini-courses offered through 613u provide a quick introduction and a list of resources to help launch your DYI education. To begin, we’re focusing on building the digital media skills of our team of volunteer bloggers, helping them to expand beyond written posts into new creative domains. Our dream is that this space becomes a place where Ottawans are inspired to try something new, or learn more about the places and people they pass by every day.
