MASC Arts Awards

21st Annual MASC Arts Awards

Twenty students were celebrated at the MASC Arts Awards Gala evening at the National Arts Centre on Tuesday May 21st for their passion for the Arts. Students won awards in drama, literary arts, music and visual arts and received scholarships, prizes and mentorship to further their artistic practices. We were delighted to welcome his worship Mayor Jim Watson, who handed out the MASC Arts Awards and our Honourary Patron, MASC artist Rhonda Doxtator who spoke passionately and offered a compelling hoop dance performance. Stefan Keyes, long-time MASC friend and winner of a MASC Arts Award in 2000 was a most vibrant MC and brought his warm personal story to this event. The Gala Evening was a vibrant experience for the students and allowed our community to gather in recognition of the lasting impact the arts have on young people.
Many thanks to our event sponsor Dustbane, the National Arts Centre and to our many supporters including the Ottawa Children’s Theatre, Bluesfest School of Music and Art and the Ottawa School of Art. Photography: Bill Juillette, Harry Ferderber.
