ABOUT

​MISSION  

The Ottawa Live Arts Community mission is to build a welcoming, resilient and sustainable Arts Hub that enriches, supports and connects artists, creatives and community. 

The Live Arts Community will foster social engagement by providing an inclusive space that welcomes all ages and abilities, and cultivate artistic practice through programs, workshops and performances

We welcome your support, input, enthusiasm and help in developing this dedicated artistic space.  

 

In order to accomplish our objectives, Ottawa Live Arts Community generates revenue through concert ticket sales, educational workshops, corporate sponsors, grants, and donations. 

​HISTORY

Ottawa Live Arts Community is a non-profit registered charitable organization. Registration number 84740 0702 RR0001.  

GigSpace updated the charity name to Ottawa Live Arts Community on April 2021.

The Ottawa Live Arts Community was developed and created by GigSpace and Alcorn Music Studios.  The inspiration came from the vibrant community of people who study, teach, and perform within our halls and have called this space "home."

GigSpace Performance Studio continues in its role as a concert venue, and has become a charitable program operated by the Ottawa Live Arts Community.

 

GigSpace was designed to provide musicians with an opportunity to perform in an intimate listening environment while allowing them to focus on their craft, interact with the audience and give truly brilliant performances. This space was created for musicians by musicians.

 

The Art Gallery showcases local visual artists through bi-monthly exhibits.
