Family Services Ottawa Fundraiser ‘Artistic Resilience: Live Music and Art Sale’

June 20 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Art is a significant contributor to our mental wellness. You’re invited to help build the resilience of individuals, families and Ottawa-area artists by attending the Family Ottawa Services (FSO)’s fundraiser ‘Artistic Resilience’ on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at the Orange Art Gallery, 290 City Centre Avenue, Ottawa from 6:30 to 10 pm.


It will feature live performances by local musicians Tara Holloway and Kristine St.-Pierre; and, an Art Sale with artworks being donated by FSO clients, patrons and staff as well as local area artists such as Robert Hinchley, Rick Madore, Kelly Dixon, Mark Patton, Susan Cartwright, Tim Deslippe and Alison Fowler. There will be a cash bar and light bites catered by Krackers Katering; a social enterprise catering business that employs persons with barriers to employment. All monies raise from ticket sales and donations will go directly to FSO to ensure the continuation of Family Services’ Ottawa’s art as therapy and Art Studio programs and services.



The latter program provides local Ottawa artists facing mental health challenges with a safe space to create, transportation, professional art instruction and workshops, as well as help with framing and exhibiting their artworks. Your financial contribution will make a difference! If you purchase 4 tickets to this event, for example, you will ensure FSO may provide professional art supplies for one of the artists for one year!


Tickets are $45.00. You may purchase them and make an on-line donation on either the FSO event website or Facebook page.


If you have any questions regarding the event, do not hesitate to contact Deirdre Speers, Executive Director of Family Services Ottawa at: 613-725-3601, ext. 115 or Siobhan Arnott, Event Coordinator at: 613-899-9378.
