Support Local: Thanks, Ottawa!

By Apartment613 on December 3, 2012

Ottawa’s first annual plaid parade. Art in a jail. A party in a jewellery shop. And so much more!

These were just a few of the events during Support Local month this November. Without your participation, Ottawa, this month couldn’t have been a success. This year, Support Local was so much bigger and bolder than we could have ever hoped. We tripled the participants from last year – over 100 businesses, artists, musicians and shops participated in and supported one of the 40+ events held during November. The creativity and collaborative spirit resonated through the entire program.

So thank you – to all who organized, attended or spread the word about Support Local.

As Ian Capstick mentioned at Apartment613 Talks, over the last four years, Ottawa’s creativity has been thriving. And this month was proof. We at Apartment613 are so lucky to be able to work with so many great people in Ottawa to make these events happen, and we were thrilled to meet so many more Ottawans at the events we were able to attend.

It’s easy to support the city when you realize how vibrant it is – and, as our friends over at Victoire wrote today, Support Local is an attitude you can easily adopt every day.

Again: thanks to all!

And, of course, many thanks to our sponsor:
