Some Good News for Retiring Artists

How wonderful is this?  PAL or Performing and Allied Arts is an Ottawa innovative to safeguard the future of people in the arts who may need assistance when the time comes for retirement. I've booked myself and several colourful tablecloths for what will be an interesting evening.

This celebration of PAL Ottawa's 1st anniversary is an outreach event for members, prospective members and friends - a chance to find out what we at PAL Ottawa are already doing for artists in the National Capital Region and what we plan to do in future.
As many of you know, our long-term objective is to build a PAL Lodge, a residence for senior artists of the region. We plan to be underway as early as 2017! And just to be clear, PAL stands for performing and allied arts - this means our lodge will welcome writers, poets, painters, sculptors, technicians, actors, dancers, musicians, and other performers and creators who work professionally in the arts.
Our "Supporting Cast" program is already up and running. Find out what it can do for you, or for someone you know who may be in need of support to stay at home while remaining connected to the community.

PAL Ottawa connects members of the National Capital Region’s professional performing arts community and allied artists to essentials such as affordable housing, personal care services, and links to the local arts community, so that they live not in isolation, need and fear, but in dignity within a caring community.
