A portion of sales from the anniversary weekend will go towards our new PW Community Silkscreening Scholarships.

Entry is free.

This event takes place on the second-floor of a plaza and is only accessible by stairs (unfortunately there is no ramp or elevator).

We acknowledge that PW is located on unceded Algonquin territory.


"You can't be what you can't see".
-Marian Wright Edelman, American activist

2019 promises to be an exciting period for PW, with new ways of seeing and doing. This includes expanded opening hours, a slightly revamped website and physical space, new programs, initiatives, collaborations and exchanges - some of which we have already launched - in addition to fresh art and music in shop. 

Co-Director Melanie Yugo will be committed to PW full-time, alongside other key volunteers and collaborators. We will continue to provide an inclusive art and music platform that helps advance creative and cultural dialogue in Ottawa and beyond.

From a one-year experiment to a community-driven space, numerous PW projects, activities and events have been activated in our 330 square feet home. To staff, volunteers, artists, partners, allies and you, we are truly grateful for your support over the years.

Thank you for joining us in this adventure! We are looking forward to the year ahead.
