#CBCMeet613 captures the beauty of Ottawa

Instagrammers captured the beauty of the capital in CBC Ottawa's #CBCMeet613 series and now you can see their photos in a mural at the National Arts Centre.

Gardens, graffiti and gourmet cuisine showcased in 5-metre mural at the NAC

At the beginning of the summer, we asked you to grab your camera and join us at events across the city. From Chinatown to City Hall to Jacques-Cartier Park to the National Arts Centre, local photographers and Instagrammers met up to capture Ottawa through their lens.

THANK YOU to everyone who shared photos with us.

After seven Instameets, we've collected 150 stunning images that are now on display in a 5-metre long #CBCMeet613 photo mural at the National Arts Centre. Just walk through the entrance at 1 Elgin Street and you'll see it by the Fourth Stage door. 

 

Here's a recap of where we went and what we saw. 

NOVEMBER 6: NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE

CBC Ottawa and the NAC invited Instagrammers to an exclusive look behind-the-scenes of Canada's stage. Dozens of photographers were drawn to the CLOUD, an interactive piece sculpted from 6000 everyday domestic light bulbs. 

AUGUST 26: HOUSE OF PAINT FESTIVAL

Flips, tricks, music and art were captured in Brewer Park at the 14th annual House of PainT urban arts festival.

AUGUST 22: CANADA SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY MUSEUM

Crazy Kitchen, cameras, clocks and more. We got an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at exhibits and artefacts in the newly-renovated museum.

AUGUST 19: SOUTH ASIAN FEST

The CBC's Omar Dabaghi-Pacheco learned some Bhangra moves at TD South Asian Fest at City Hall.

 

AUGUST 8: ALGONQUIN COLLEGE

We went beyond the classroom to gardens, kitchens and rooftop views of the Woodroffe campus.

JULY 15: MOSAICANADA

After-hours access to Jacques-Cartier Park meant Instagrammers could roam the gardens after the crowds had gone home.

JUNE 21: CHINATOWN WALK

The CBC's Giacomo Panico brought his camera and hit the streets of Chinatown to explore some of the lesser known spots.
