A fundraiser for SAW Video Media Art Centre
Now in its 3rd year, HOTBOX has become a symbol of Ottawa’s local thriving artistic scene. This year’s event features a chill after work outdoor BBQ in SAW’s historic courtyard with Luciano’s fantastic sausages, organic veggie kebabs, Kichesippi beer + Harvey & Vern’s all-natural soda, all to the soundtrack of host DJ’s. As the sun goes down, a Music Video Dance Party will take over the courtyard.
Meanwhile inside, prepare yourself for a psychic clash of punk horror and diva awesomeness. Local artist Phil Osborne and his Osborne Oddities take over SAW Gallery with a Weird Wall of Horrors and Special Effects workshop while China Doll Bingo breaks out in Club SAW – note: this is NOT your grandmother’s bingo!. Late night partying continues in Club SAW with DJ Male Nurse and VJ Mahmud Naqi.
