WAM! Ottawa works to connect and support media critics and makers, activists, academics, and funders working to advance the participation, ownership, and representation of marginalized communities.

WAM! Ottawa operates under anti-oppression values. What this means: WAM! Ottawa is intergenerational, anti-racist, anti-colonialism and anti-imperialist, pro-economic-justice, trans-welcoming, queer-friendly, pro-immigrant, anti-abelist, sex-worker friendly, interfaith, and supports size diversity.

WAM! Ottawa is located within unceded Algonquin territory. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous people’s territorial and cultural rights.

This event is part of WAM! It Yourself 2013, a multi-city event by Women, Action & the Media. For more information about events happening in Ottawa and all over the world, check back here or email Alanna.
