Crime Prevention Ottawa is calling all artists to ‘Paint it Up’ by creating outdoor mural art projects. If you have a wall or building in Stittsville that you think could be beautified with art, of course with permission, apply by April 2nd. This program has been in place for 10 years and has prevented graffiti from taking hold while bringing artistic talent to blank walls. Applications are available at the Crime Prevention Ottawa website or by calling 3-1-1. This could be an opportunity to share some of Stittsville’s historical past with the present.

The City is also seeking out local musicians to apply to have their original songs played through #ottmusik for the listening pleasure of residents while waiting on hold to speak with a City official. The songs will be reviewed by a committee made up of Ottawa-area professional musicians who will recommend 25 songs to be played on the City phone systems. The songs will begin airing in the Spring of 2019 and continue for one year. If you are interested in sharing your musical talents with the residents of Ottawa, here is how you can take part by March 18, 2019 – Stittsville has many hidden songwriters out there, so take the time to look into this opportunity to let others hear your music. Who knows who is listening and may discover you!
