ARTicipate Team

Management of the ARTicipate Endowment Fund has been spearheaded by Arts Network Ottawa (formerly AOE Arts Council) since the Fund’s inception in 2007. The Fund is run by committed Arts Network Ottawa staff.

The amazing success that the Fund has been achieved would never have been possible without the continued efforts of our ARTicipate Ambassadors, volunteers, and the Shenkman Arts Centre Resident Arts Partners.

“It’s been a long journey. The Shenkman Arts Centre, twenty years in the making, is a testament to an incredible amount of hard work by a lot of people who never gave up on the vision or the dream. Today, as a result, we have an amazing multidisciplinary arts centre where artists and community can come together. The ARTicipate Endowment Fund is AOE’s way of helping to support innovation and quality arts activities within the Centre for generations to come.”
