Le Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle (the Centre) is a contemporary art exhibition space established in Ottawa, which supports and promotes the work of francophone and francophile artists to a wider audience.
The programming of the Centre favours the digital arts in order to establish a dialogue between artists, the community to which they belong and the broader art world. The Centre also develops educational activities for artists, students and members of the public in connection with its exhibitions. It facilitates presentations, lectures and other activities that further the comprehension of art in its community. It supports young emerging artists through concerted activities in schools. The Centre actively seeks to establish networks to expand its scope, reach out to minority francophone communities, encourage the circulation of artwork and promote artists to increase their visibility in a larger territory.
