The City of Ottawa, in partnership with Bayview Yards, and prototypeD TEAM Inc, are making beautiful music together at Lansdowne Park with the MadeMill Innovation Pod – available for Ottawa musicians and other artists.
The Innovation Pod is a multi-use mobile technology studio designed for entrepreneurs, with support from FedDev Ontario(link is external). It was developed at Bayview Yards by protoypeD TEAM and provides a creative space that can be used in a multitude of ways.
The space can be used for workshops, podcasts, media space, virtual reality demos, music performance, recording studio time and other events. The pod is fully wired and self sufficient, with solar panels providing energy to run all technology. The pod features a 3-D printer and a special recording studio, complete with acoustic tiling, for podcasts or intimate performances.
The Innovation Pod’s residency at Lansdowne advances the new Ottawa Music Strategy goal of opening up more City-owned space to musicians and the music industry.
The Ottawa Music Industry Coalition (OMIC) and Apt613 are providing programming for the space from September to November, making these capabilities available to local musicians and artists in support of Ottawa’s Music Strategy and broader economic development. Programming for August has been supplied by prototypeD.
