Hintonburg & Wellington Village

In 2022, when Wellington West Business Improvement Area received a City grant to re-energize their mainstreet after a long, dark period, they commissioned a series of ten pop-up performances with  local artists and arts groups in surprising public spaces.

They called it “WelliWOW”.

MASC artist, Media Arts Educator and Video Producer Craig Conoley documented the WelliWOW series to produce a short documentary on the artistic vibrance in Hintonburg and Wellington Village. Watch WelliWOW: A Little Renaissance in Wellington West below!

Featuring these artists: The Junkyard Symphony, ArtsPark performers, Luciano Porto, the Dr. Jazz Band, the Orpheus Musical Theatre Society, the Parkdale Orchestra, Propeller Dance, Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar, Jacqui Du Toit, Claudia Salguero, Kathryn Patricia Cobbler and Lynn Miles.

WelliWOW is brought to you with funding from The City of Ottawa’s Downtown Business Relief Fund and events were presented in partnership with MASC, the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition (OMIC), the Friends of Parkdale Market, Ottawa Markets and Together Ottawa.
