We are looking for stories about cultural experiences in Ottawa. These can include stories about the experiences of artists and cultural workers in Ottawa; Ottawa’s communities, neighbourhoods, and rural villages; personal connections to cultural and natural heritage sites and landmarks; and other stories that celebrate our city’s rich arts, culture, and heritage.
Stories may be told in any language. However, story-tellers that use a language other than English or French may be asked to help with translation.
Stories may be told using video, audio, or text. You may copy and paste text into the box below. For video and audio files, please provide links. The ideal length for text stories is 1 -2 pages, and the ideal length for video and audio stories is 2 – 3 minutes. For text and audio stories, please also provide a link to a picture to accompany your story. This will be the featured image in the Z-Space (stories page).
Stories will be reviewed by the cultural mapping team before being posted or linked on OttawaXYZ.
