Beau’s Beer Trivia Night at Raw Sugar Cafe

Join us, Monday June 15th. 7pm for a night of BEER TRIVIA at RAW SUGAR CAFE. Lets have fun and fundraise for our Chinatown community art festival. 

Chinatown Remixed UPDATE!

Chinatown Remixed began as an initiative eight years ago to showcase art, music and performance in Ottawa’s Chinatown, but the artistic journey of this month-long art festival is taking a new direction. For a number of reasons relating mostly to vision and mandate and funding. However, these changes didn’t deter the festival organizers in their pursuit to make Ottawa a more creative, exciting place to live! We began planning for an art showcase in September, with the bulk of the budget riding on a grant proposal submitted to the City of Ottawa.

Sadly, Chinatown Remixed was recently informed that our grant application was unsuccessful. Our options were to throw in the towel, or to throw a giant fundraiser. You can probably guess which one we chose.

So, come out to Chinatown PREmixed on June 6, a fundraising party with all proceeds going back into the community! We are relying on the people of Ottawa to help us through a rough patch as we restructure our funding model. The future will bring great things, and while it may look a bit different than the past few years, we are excited to share our festival with you! but only if we can pay the starving artists of today.

PREmixed will feature:
Craft beer from Beau’s, Dominion City and Whitewater Brewery 
Live painting with a silent art auction
Ping-pong tables
Djs spinning all day
Food & Nibbles 
Swag shop for your style needs

June 6, from 2pm-9pm in Shanghai restaurant’s parking lot. NO COVER, donations accepted.
Let’s have some fun in the sun!
CHINATOWN PREMIXED PARKING LOT BREW PARTY

What this means for the festival:
Scale: CT Remixed tries to create accessible spaces and low-cost events. In order to continue this, larger-scale events such as last year’s free stage with musicians will not be highly featured in 2015. We are hoping to bring musicians and other exciting acts in future years.

Art on display: The budget for the Call for Submissions will be determined based on the proceeds from our fundraising events. While we anticipate having fewer venues in which to display art, showcasing local artists will continue to be a priority for our budget. The Call for Submissions is expected to launch in June.

DIY: Let’s get crafty! You can expect our family-friendly DIY activities to continue.

Community Driven: This festival is about supporting local art, which comes in many forms. Especially with the financial and in-kind donations we are hoping to bring from people and businesses across the city, we want to make this year’s festival a celebration of renewal and change. If you want to get involved or provide suggestions about what you want to see in the festival, the organizing committee can be reached at  ottawachinatownremixed.com
