Launched in 2007, the BYTOWN MUSEUM Community Gallery program affords community groups, embassies, cultural organizations and local artists the opportunity to tell their stories within our walls. The Community Gallery – a unique Ottawa space located in the former cooper’s workshop, is an excellent venue to showcase the stories and perspectives of the diverse peoples that call Ottawa home. The Gallery has played host to a myriad of diverse exhibits from the likes of the: Polish Canadian Women’s Federation, the Ottawa Little Theatre, the Embassy of Guatemala, the Ottawa Valley Button Society and the Chinese-Canadian Arts Council, as well as local photographers Rémi Thériault and Graham Iddon to name a few.
We welcome all interested individuals, community and cultural groups, embassies and artists to fill out an application for the Program, or contact us directly for more information.
Please forward the following Call for Proposal Form to us once completed.
