What is Cathedral Arts?
Cathedral Arts celebrates and promotes the visual and performing arts in the unique setting of Ottawa’s historic Christ Church Cathedral.
The celebration of the arts within the precincts of the Cathedral is by no means new or novel. Throughout mediaeval Europe, the crowning glory of any great city was its cathedral. These beautiful edifices were more than places of worship. They were the very heart of the communities’ culture and society – offering settings where artists and musicians presented their masterworks, and where dramatists and performers of the day taught and entertained with their mystery and morality plays. It is this respected tradition that inspired Cathedral Arts to embark upon its program of celebrating the arts at Christ Church Cathedral.
By offering concerts, dramatic productions, educational dinner lectures, and exhibits, Christ Church Cathedral is becoming known as a welcoming place where members of the entire community, irrespective of background or ethnicity, can come to be inspired spiritually, culturally and educationally.
Cathedral Arts is managed by a small volunteer committee. Financial support comes wholly from the proceeds of events, from Cathedral Arts Patrons, from supporters, and advertising. All profits are reinvested in Cathedral Arts and occasionally shared with local charities through specific collaborative arrangements. Read more…
