Session 1: September 28, 7-9PM
Presenter: Tonya Davidson (Carleton)
Title: [De]Touring Elgin Street
Location: National War Memorial
In this workshop, join Ottawa (De)tours guides on a walk down Ottawa’s Elgin Street. Stopping at sites like the National War Memorial, the National Arts Centre, Confederation Park, the Shopify building guides will offer different takes on the sites. The National Arts Centre can simultaneously be read through the lens of architectural history, an appreciation for public space, and a discussion of co-habiting with urban fauna (birds!). Workshop participants will be asked to take photographs of compelling sites. After the workshop, we will make a collaborative colouring book from the participants’ photographs.
