It’s here, folks. The long-awaited, much anticipated By Day By Night guide… Brought to you by Apartment613.
Developed in collaboration with our favourite local designer Steve St. Pierre, and through a partnership with the City of Ottawa for the Creative City Network of Canada 2013 Summit (starting tomorrow), By Day By Night is your source for innovative projects by artists and makers, as well as some of the galleries, shops, restaurants and cafés that make our city unique. We’ll be distributing copies over the next few days in various downtown locations (you can download a version of your own here).
The initial idea for the guide came out of conversations a few of our editors had with the great minds working at the Community Arts + Social Engagement division of the City of Ottawa (aka – Caleb Abbott and Allison O’Connor). Once a year, the Creative City Network of Canada hosts a conference for municipal staff working in communities across Canada on arts, cultural and heritage policy, planning, development and support – and this year it’s happening in Ottawa. What better way to share our passion of the city with visitors from out of town? Contrary to what others may think, we know there’s a ton of great stuff going on here and we want to share it!
While the conference is designed with specific people in mind (and also sold out), the By Day By Night guide profiles projects by artists (including a HipsterMonocle by Mark Stephenson and audio soundtrack composed by Adam Saikaley), self-guided walking and bike tours (free!), as well as other events that are open and accessible to the general public.
