From floral beadwork to ink on eggs, from paint on canvas to birch bark bitings, floral images are a source of symbolism that support self-identification, cultural identity, memory, traditional knowledge and meditation."Through this exhibition, I hope to express two main ideas. First and foremost, I want to highlight how floral art serves as a source of inspiration and connection in so many cultures, something that I personally witnessed in my youth. Secondly, I want to share how flowers provided a kind of balance that took my mind away from the less beautiful things around me.This exhibition is meant to be enjoyed and I hope it brings you happiness and encourages you to think about how flowers are represented in your own life." - Excerpt from the essay by Jaime KoebelPresented in collaboration with the NAC's Canada Scene.. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1..

There will be burgers, chips, refreshments as well as vegetarian options. We will also have games and activities for kids, as well as a raffle draw for a chance to win prizes.Proceeds will go towards our first project of rebuilding a school called Institution Classique in Canaan, Haiti. The school is in a bad state of disrepair, never having recovered from the earthquake of 2010 and then the devastating hurricane of 2016, which made an already bad situation worse. The school has only one teacher and 70 students. We need to raise $700,000 to rebuild the school but we need your help to do this If you are interested in volunteering at our BBQ or donating to our organization, please email or visit our website.Note: Vincent Massey Park is located at Heron Road and Riverside Drive, parking is accessible via Heron Road and nearby bus routes include the 88 and the 111.

Romeo & Juliet

July 13, 2017 7:00 pm. By William Shakespeare. Directed by Eleanor Crowder. Music Direction by Rachel Eugster.Passions soar and hearts break in this 90-minute version of Shakespeare's love story for all time. Here is love as obsession--love in a time of darkness. Here is craziness in the face of a culture where honour killings are rampant, and death is a better option than marriage to a chosen suitor.Join us outdoors to celebrate the long evenings and warm weather and enjoy theatre that stands the test of time. Bear & Co. brings you an experience close to the touring companies of four hundred years ago. Bring a cool drink or a full picnic, rain-gear in case it mizzles, and bug spray, and watch six actors conjure the warring families of Verona in front of your eyes, while letting you in on the technical fun of staging a play in the open air.Bring a blanket or lawn chair.For other locations, check out our tour schedule on our website.P.S. What a rainy year! But we love an audience wrapped in weatherproof gear.Unless conditions are dangerous (the presence of lightning, or footing so slippery the actors are at risk) the show goes on!. 269 Clare StreetOttawa, ON K1Z 7E3..
