FLÂNEUR IN OTTAWA: Public Protest & Public Art PT 1

Sikh Protest of Death Penalty in India, Parliament Hill.
Protestors gather around the Centennial Flame at the Parliament Buildings, Ottawa.

I am giving a photographic assignment to myself.

Directive:

  • Find examples of communities protesting
  • Find  examples of art in public spaces

I have no real agenda other than to walk where my feet take me then just document what I happen across although I do support the right to public protest and I encourage more art in public spaces.

Yesterday while in Ottawa I walked into a protest by the Sikh community regarding India’s use of the death penalty. More in information on the reasons for the Sikh protest of the Indian Government here.

PT 2 & some pics of public art to follow soon…
