The development of the Public Art Plan for Montreal Road and the surrounding Vanier communities should aim to be as inclusive and barrier free as possible, allowing space for diverse and marginalized voices and perspectives in the consultation process. The approach for engaging and consulting with communities should be an artistic and creative process in itself. The Public Art Plan should be strongly rooted in place and reflect the local values, stories, aspirations and character of the neighbourhood. In addition, the Public Art Plan should be innovative and forward thinking and present exciting and inventive approaches to public art. In the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation and in keeping with the City of Ottawa’s Reconciliation Action Plan the proponent should include Indigenous representation and culture in the Art Plan.
