Make this your space.
We created SSO to make a difference. Artists in Ottawa face not only a lack of studios, but also affordability, criteria that creates barriers, and instability due to gentrification. To make our studios unreservedly open to all visual artists, we’ve replaced the usual requirement for a portfolio with a simple application. We don’t judge the work, and we accept artists at all level of their career, from emerging to established. SSO artists range in age from twenties to eighties, and reflect diverse cultural backgrounds. We welcome applications from artists from equity seeking communities.
