Together Ottawa Ensemble is encouraging Ottawa residents to acknowledge where they are at. Let’s hold space for how we are feeling, from needing to mourn, to wanting to feel joy, to hoping to reconnect with people. And, all of the above some days.

Residents across Ottawa are invited to plan events, small and large, for our community. An event that feels right for you. From a community picnic, to breakdancing, a drag show on a patio, an online art-making workshop, a panel about communities disproportionately impacted, to an interfaith vigil honouring those we’ve lost.

We’re providing planning tips to help you organize an event, and the website to announce it.

Plan your event to take place between Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 26, 2022. Add it to the website to invite our city or just your community. That’s two months away and together we can do this!

Help build the excitement! Spread the work through your email lists, social media, community groups and more. Follow and tag us (on Facebook (@TogetherOttawaEnsembleInstagram @TogetherOttawaEnsemble, and Twitter @TogetherOttawa) and use the hashtag #TOE2022 so we can see and share your advance event promotion and photos during your event.
