Hull your ass across the River! Arboretum will make it worth your while

Written by on

Arboretum is taking the party to Hull with a full night of programming across the river, including shows at Le Troquet and Le Petit Chicago. This will be a great opportunity to increase our cultural dialogue  across the river and help extend the festival audience. Nicolas Sylvestre, of the Fau Mardi collective, (a group that links DJs, VJs, producers and other technology-engaged artists together for events and shows) believes that people who cross the river to work should really think more about getting to know the community after hours. “Reality... | Continue reading article

Just over 20 years ago, New York’s Beastie Boys released their fourth album, Ill Communication.  Weaving together the sounds of punk, funk and hip-hop with live instrumentation and inventive, abstract sampling, the album touched on much of what many would consider delicious from the 90s. Now is a rare chance to hear the whole thing live, performed tonight at the Manx by non-other than Ottawa’s own Adam Saikaley and crew. That’s the scoop, so don’t be a bobo on the corner, tough guy. Get it together, and do it. Sandro... | Continue reading article

Let’s face it – Augtober is bringing a lot of us down. It feels like the summer is ending too soon. Not so! There’s still plenty of life in the city and we’re just getting ready for the second half of the warm season. If you’re somewhat of a homebody like me, you’re probably looking for something more relaxing yet still social this Sunday. Look no more, and check out Rideau Hall Movie Nights put on by the Governor General David Johnston’s team to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the... | Continue reading article

Check out the Maker Faire this weekend – it’s bigger than ever

Written by on
Maker Faire

It is no secret that Ottawa is full of talent of both an artistic and technical nature. Doors across the city conceal people working on special projects. This Saturday and Sunday (August 16 and 17) a number of these hidden works will be on display  at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology in the fun and interactive event – Maker Faire. I spoke with Remco Volmer who is Program and Development Manager at ArtEngine, the Ottawa-based  collective  focused on technology-based art that organizes the event. The first Maker Faire was held in 2010 and... | Continue reading article

Enough gets said about the popular modern restaurants that are elevating Ottawa’s food scene. And we love trying and raving about those impressive joints. But we also love the tried and true institutions that represent the enduring foundation of Ottawa’s proud food scene. When one apt613.ca reader asked us to write about her favourite restaurant, La Cabana, upon donating to our recent Indiegogo campaign, we cheered. If you’re looking for a ‘nouveau’ menu in a trendy, slick space, La Cabana isn’t for you. If you’re up for some downhome Salvadorean... | Continue reading article

Find out about the Fall’s big events at the next Hub & Spoke

Written by on
hub and spoke

It was over three years ago that we first participated in Hub & Spoke. Hosted by Hub Ottawa, the event enabled us to tell a group of local movers and shakers about what we did, what we were trying to achieve and how we wanted to get there. During the night we made important connections, without which we wouldn’t be where we are today. Both Hub Ottawa and Apt613 have come long way since then, but Hub & Spoke remains the place to showcase social and eco innovation and create... | Continue reading article
