at 601 Somerset, Ottawa, K1R 5K1 Canada
In collaboration, Jackpine Labs and Atelier Ruderal propose Percy Station for Ottawa Streetside Spots 2016. Show your support!
West Somerset is an undervalued urban space in the city of Ottawa--with the recent closure of Raw Sugar and the tragic destruction of the Daily Grind, the area lacks a hub for cultural activity and exploration more than ever. We are proposing here to reactivate the space with the addition of a modular structure that thrives on rotating programming and functions as a shared community space. Percy Station functions as locus for community activity: a place for people to meet, drink coffee, share ideas, and create cultural experiences. Programming for Percy Station includes a rotating coffee house as a special event that will accompany micro shows, small-scale programmable cultural events. Local businesses will be invited to take part in serving coffee and drinks during a micro show. The events will be free, with programming including live music, poetry readings, and theatre sessions. Percy Station will highlight the importance of utilizing existing urban spaces that are often overlooked, and facilitate new forms of urban community experiences and cultural programming.
