House of PainT
House of PainT fest exhibits and uplifts the best of Ottawa hip hop arts and culture—08.23.19 to 08.25.19
Local graffiti artists, dance crews, deejays, poets and emcees are celebrated and elevated by the annual House of PainT Festival.
From Pride to House of PainT and everything in between, this weekend goes to show that even though summer is winding down, Ottawa is just as busy as ever.
The 15th annual House of PainT festival takes places from August 24–26, 2018.
It’s another jam packed weekend in Ottawa so without further ado, here are some picks for how to spend your weekend!
Street art, concerts, dance battles and discussion panels. Photos from the House of PainT Festival under Dunbar Bridge last weekend.
With so much going on, deciding what to do can be hard. We hope we can help you out with that, in offering you this weekend’s lengthy list of highlights.
More than 200 graffiti artists, dancers, hip hop artists and DJs of all levels will gather underneath the Dunbar Bridge for the 14th annual House of PainT Festival (August 24–27, 2017).
Visual artists often linked with Canada’s growing Afrofuturism movement include Ottawa’s Kalkidan Assefa and Komi Olaf, and their work shows not only imagination, but also commitment to addressing pressing political issues like police brutality.
Thirteen years in, House of PainT has become one of Ottawa’s staple summer festivals.
The Olympics are over and we no longer have a reason to stay inside (besides that glorious AC) so grab some friends and enjoy what Ottawa has to offer this weekend!
