AR Experience on Sparks!

To truly understand the depth and breadth of Canadian culture, you have no choice but to travel from coast to coast.

Unless... You take part in One Canada experiences in downtown Ottawa.

Get a taste for everything near and far. Hear what it means to be Canadian from the diverse groups that inhabit our beautiful country. See art and play games that will make you laugh or leave you with something to ponder.

Canada is more than just maple syrup and beaver tails. The One Canada experiences will give you a taste of indigenous culture, black history, and pride in Canada.

Download the Engage Art app and be on your way to understanding everything Canada has to offer all while walking the streets of downtown Ottawa.

The Augmented Reality Experience can be found on Sparks Street between Metcalfe and O'Connor streets beginning August 25, 2022. The exhibit will run until the end of October, 2022.

Play the game!

Compete with your friends!

This interactive camper van is full of fun ways to explore:

Scan the QR code above to fly sky high in a hot air balloon! Compete with your friends to see who can collect the most coffee and donuts.

Push all the buttons around the window and see the train go around the tracks or a fleet of snowbirds soar through across the screens. Can you figure out what every button does?

This art piece is created by Kristyn Watterworth and Edward Platero. It represents bringing all of Canada into one city. Each part of the model inside showcases a different part of Canada’s diverse culture. Check out a little piece of every province inside!

This installation is under 24/7 video surveillance.

Be sure to tag @Sparks_Street on social media when you visit to share your experience! We love seeing our visitors engage on #MySparksStreet!
