Thank You Chinatown!

We want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in our May 17th festivities at Chinatown Remixed 2014. The festival’s success is the result of a collective effort of the artists, guest curators, performers, musicians, djs, workshop instructors, and businesses. 

We are also indebted to the many volunteers who worked tirelessly from dawn to midnight. You all rock! We are grateful for the financial support from our Jade sponsors – Ottawa Chinatown BIA, the City of Ottawa, Porter Airlines, our Pearl sponsor – Cultural Interpretation Services for Our Communities, our Lotus sponsor – Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, Broadhead Brewing Company and Kelly Funeral Home, our In-kind sponsors – Busy Girl Design, Canadian Red Cross, Evangeline Flowers, Indie*Go, Ottawa School of Art, Showboat, and So Good Restaurant, and our partnerships – Canadian Museum of Nature, HighJinx, My Sweet Tea, Shanghai restaurant and ZenKitchen restaurant.

And, last but not least, a big thank you also goes to the community and the Kids with Cameras who participated in the opening celebrations. 

Chinatown Remixed continues until June 17th. You’ll have a month to visit the 38 art installations in the participating stores, restaurants and other businesses along Somerset Street West. Remember to bring your Chinatown Remixed passport to collect stamps. For every 3 stamps, your name will be entered into the draw for two free tickets anywhere Porter Airlines travels. Check out our web site (chinatownremixed.ca/) for contest rules and to download the Chinatown Remixed Artist Walking Tour Passport. 

Chinatown is a vibrant and wonderful neighbourhood to live, work and hang-out. Without you, there would not be a Chinatown Remixed.

Cheers!
