The QVBIA and House of PainT Festival of Arts and Culture present: MOZAIK, a community celebration to unveil the TALLEST mural in Ottawa painted by artist team: Mique Michelle and Kalkidan Assefa! MOZAIK will feature another large mural painted on the Peach Garden at 273 Montréal Road, in partnership with Crime Prevention Ottawa’s Paint It Up program, the Boys and Girls Club and the Vanier Community Service Centre. Throughout the day and into the evening, House of PainT will animate the heart of Vanier with live music, dance, and entertainment which will include: Nile Groove and TIMEKODE.

Nile Groove is an accomplished and culturally diverse 6-piece Ottawa-based reggae, R&B and funk band have been grooving up the music scene with its distinguishable sound and style, performing fresh, energizing, and infectious original and cover music since its 2012 beginnings, live and on international airwaves. TIMEKODE is Ottawa’s largest, longest-running monthly dance party. From humble beginnings at Café Nostalgica in 2005, to the recent warehouse blowouts at Maker Space North, TIMEKODE has emerged as a beacon for progressive plurality on the dancefloor in Canada. Its resident DJs Memetic and Zattar have spent the last 10+ years using this philosophy to explore the freshest sounds of yesterday, today and tomorrowacross genres, on two turntables.

Also included in MOZAIK will be the very popular Brewery Market, an event series inspired by the traditional farmers market that offers locally-produced craft beer served in a small-scale outdoor setting. The breweries that will be taking part in the event are Clocktower, Dominion City and Bicycle Brewery. Plus several local food vendors and CHUO 89.1 FM, MOZAIK’s media sponsor, will also be taking part in this highly-anticipated community gathering, with performances by The Full Time Groove and local hip hop artist KOOL KRYS.
