WELCOME TO THE BIG BANG AMBASSADORS

Just nutty about BIG BANG, you’ll see these 10-13 year-old super fans everywhere sporting festival colours. At the welcome desk, around the artists or indulging in activities these guys are crazy about BIG BANG! They are our ambassadors and most committed festivalgoers!

 

THANKS TO THE BIG BANG PARTNERS

Bringing the BIG BANG to Ottawa grew out of the NAC’s relationship with Zonzo Compagnie, a Belgian music/theatre company for young audiences founded by Van Looy. Over the past few years, the NAC has presented some of its shows, including Listen to the Silence about the music of John Cage, Slumberland, which explores the world of dreams and the night, as well as Mile(s)tones about the famous jazz legend Miles Davis.

The BIG BANG festival in Ottawa is held with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ottawa Tourism, Winterlude 2020, the Creative Europe Program of the European Union, Donald T. Walcot and the Fondation Sandra et Alain Bouchard.

The BIG BANG festival is an initiative of Zonzo Compagnie.
