Counting on Culture: Impacts and Indicators in Ottawa

We are pleased to present the first edition of the Counting on Culture: Impacts and Indicators in Ottawa, a set of culture indicators intended to provide a window on cultural activity in Ottawa.

Community organizations and governments alike have long recognized the need for comprehensive, consistent, and reliable culture data collection and regular reporting of culture indicators. In May 2016, the Ottawa Culture Research Group (OCRG) was created as an informal collaboration of community, academic, and government partners working together to share culture data and research and to develop culture indicators. This report is the result of that collaboration.

Youth Active Media

The Art. The Craft. The Impact.

 

Youth Active Media is a neighbourhood-based, videography initiative for youth.  Youth reflecting geographic communities across Ottawa have the opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking while creating short films about issues that matters to them.  Youth Active Media empowers youth to effect positive social change through art, while developing transferable skills, and providing employment opportunities for youth through paid mentorships!
