Chinatown Remixed presented its 8th annual art festival in Ottawa’s Chinatown. The month-long free art festival kicked off with a Vernissage day on Sept. 24th and ran until Oct. 29th at various locations on Somerset Street West, between Bay St. and Preston St.
Chinatown Remixed featured visual art, sculpture and performances presented in unconventional spaces such as restaurants, medical offices, hair salons, grocery stores and alleyways.
