Chinatown remixed

Tomorrow, Ottawa residents should consider checking out the Chinatown remixed art event, on Somerset. It will feature the work of fifty artists in a number of unconventional venues. According to the organizers, it is partially inspired by the Nuit Blanche community art events in Montreal and Toronto.

The event runs from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Participating venues include the Mekong Restaurant, Raw Sugar, the Shanghai Restaurant, the So Good Restaurant, and the Umi Cafe. Basically, just head to that section of Somerset and you should be able to see what’s going on.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
