From September 27 to 29, 2013, Canadians will gather from across the country converge on Ottawa for a conference on improving the quality of life in our communities through the arts. Co-hosted by the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and Carleton University's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Power of the Arts Forum will mobilize researchers, business leaders, legal experts, policymakers, youth, health practitioners, artists, and others to explore cutting-edge research, community and urban renewal, and social innovation for bettering the lives of underserved Canadians and revitalizing communities.

On Sunday, June 9, 2013, we held our second annual OSCA Windsor Park Art Show from 10am-4pm. The weather had been very rainy all week and we were all feeling a bit scared of what Sunday might bring. We heard tales of rosaries being hung on clotheslines, seven suns being hung in windows, fingers being crossed, wishes and prayers being made…and in the end all of our collective energies and methods paid off and we had a beautiful sunny day!
We have begun a process of developing a vision, mission, goals, and priorities to guide our future—our Strategic Framework. The benefit of a Strategic Framework is that it will guide us towards our desired future. It will help us to review what we are currently doing to be sure that we are doing all we can in those areas that are identified as key goals and/or priorities.
“If you don’t know where you are going, any path will do”
OSCA is proud to present the second annual OSCA Windsor Park Art Show on June 9th, from 10 am to 4 pm at Windsor Park. Come and enjoy live music, visit and shop with area artists and artisans and enjoy a lovely day in Windsor Park. We plan to be in the soccer field area again this year unless the heat is as unbearable as it was last year, in which case we will shelter in the shade of the trees.
