Inspiration Village

Inspiration Village: an ephemeral hub located in Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market.

A core site for Ottawa 2017 programming, this edgy-looking entertainment locale on York Street is the site of a succession of special exhibits and performing arts events, each one showcasing Canada’s provinces and territories.

In an unusual twist, Inspiration Village has been built out of sea containers transformed into an aesthetic artistic installation – a sustainable, cost-effective and flexible building material that is gaining interest around the world.

Inspiration Village is open daily from noon to 8 p.m. (until 11 p.m. on Canada Day) with exhibits, demonstrations and performances.
