Your participation at this and other events throughout the year will greatly help sustain one of Ottawa’s longest running film festivals.

One World Arts (formerly World Inter-Action Mondiale-WIAM) is a volunteer-based, charitable organization which has been working diligently with Canadian arts and community organizations to educate and mobilize Ottawa-Gatineau citizens on global issues since 1972.

The One World Film Festival is Ottawa’s longest running annual documentary film festival, focused on raising awareness on such issues as social justice, human rights and the environment.

Ottawa Comic Jam – Nov. Ed. – Wed. Nov. 25


Ottawa Comic Jam

November Edition

Wednesday, November 25, 7 – 9:30 pm, FREE

The Ottawa Comic Jam “Super Jam” invites participants of all ages to start, continue and complete group effort improvised comic strip stories.

It’s been quite a year! Come out to the LAST JAM of the season and draw your inspired (or twisted) versions of favorite yuletide icons. If you’ve been putting off attending a jam, now is your chance to get out to one before the End of Days. No excuses n__n

I have heard rumours that there may be treats involved n_n

I’m also bringing a box destined for the Food Bank, if folks would like to bring non-perishable foods to donate on behalf of the Ottawa Comic Jam Group :-) totally voluntary ♥

The art of the comic jam explores artistic collaboration, visual arts, and story telling. Comic jams challenge the creativity and improvisation skills of the participants as they start, continue or complete a comic strip story.
