This charming video was produced by Awesome Arts en folie. It tells the story of the late René Chartrand, a Lowertown resident who was known as the Catman of Parliament Hill. Note: French narration, no sub-titles.
This animation was told and recorded by a group of francophone seniors who participated in the 2015 Awesome Arts en folie program in Lowertown. The storytelling program was led by Marie-Thé Morin of Vox Théâtre and the animation was created by a group of anglophone children of Lowertown who were led by Tina Le Moine and her intern Alia Khan and volunteer Janine Lameiras.
The program was funded by Canadian Heritage and the City of Ottawa Youth Internship Progam, offered in partnership with the Lowertown Community Resource Centre and the Centre de services Guigues. The video was screened at the March 27, 2015 Awesome Arts en folie Festival.
René Chartrand died on December 7, 2014. He was 92. Click here to read his life story.
The Lowertown Community Association (LCA) and Lowertown Community Resource Centre (LCRC) have heard from a number of residents who are interested in developing a community garden somewhere in Lowertown on the west side of King Edward Avenue, similar to Angel Square Community Garden, which is located in front of 40 Cobourg Street in Lowertown East and is supported by the LCRC.
To help get a project underway, the LCA and LCRC are hosting a community meeting on Thursday, April 16, from 6:30 to 8 pm, at Routhier Community Centre.
The purpose of the meeting is to hear how the LCRC helped residents to develop the Angel Square community garden and to get interested community members together to form a garden committee.
All are welcome! No gardening experience is needed to participate in this project.
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
