A Few Photos from Chinatown Remixed

Saturday marked the kickoff of the 5th annual Chinatown Remixed arts festival here in Ottawa. Somerset street West, closed to automobiles for a few blocks, was buzzing with activity.

For those not familiar with Chinatown Remixed, here’s an exerpt from the organization’s website:

The Chinatown Remixed Collective promotes contemporary art in Ottawa’s Chinatown, a multicultural village with an Asian flavour. We provide alternative spaces to typical gallery venues, giving a platform to artists. Both established artists and emerging artists are encouraged to exhibit. We promote Chinatown’s singular community with its vibrant, eclectic mix of residents, businesses, churches, community centre, health centre and the university college. We adapt to our community’s ever-changing diversity of backgrounds, including Vietnamese, French, Chinese, Korean, Aboriginal, Lebanese, Indian, Romanian, Italian, Ukrainian, Cambodian, Thai and South American. We also promote multiculturalism within the arts, embracing artists of various ethnic roots.

The outdoor exhibitions will be on display until June 18th.
