Venue and Hotel




The 2017 Art of Changing the World Gathering will take place at the beautiful Richcraft Hall (formerly known as the River Building), at Carleton Unversity.


Many ACW participants are staying at the Lord Elgin Hotel, though there are many other options.

Lord Elgin is one of the most centrally-located downtown Ottawa hotels, just a stone’s throw away from the Rideau Canal and Confederation Park. Stay with us and you’ll discover the most captivating parts of Ottawa, Canada’s beautiful capital city. Originally constructed in 1941, Lord Elgin is a piece of Ottawa’s history.
