Ottawa (de)tours has closed.

After 6 wonderful years, the Ottawa (de)tours project is winding down. Effective July 2019, we are no longer offering tours. We are proud of what we have built over the past number of seasons -- we think our content has sparked excellent insights, created wonderful conversations, and has overall generated important space to ask critical questions -- all crucial elements to a healthy society.
Over our seasons in operation, we developed original material on over a dozen walking tours, including: branding and symbols, brutalism, citizen versus institutional science, Canada at 100/150, colonialism, consumerism, citizenship and democracy, financial systems, food and natural systems, food waste, identities, leisure, nationalism, surveillance and privacy, public and private space, women’s issues, and many many other sub-topics.
Thank you for your patronage, Ottawa. We hope to continue having great conversations with you.
Dan and Susan, Ottawa (de)tours co-founders
