Mission Statement

The mission of the Spirit of Rasputin’s Arts Society is to create a home for the Ottawa folk music community where we celebrate and promote folk and folk-related music, provide an opportunity for participatory music, and create a launching pad for developing talent.

Our specific objectives are:

  • Provide a physical home for folk events;
  • Promote participation in folk music and generally promote folk music;
  • Support, promote and house the Rasputin’s jams;
  • Develop performers through the open stage;
  • Celebrate folk music by presenting paid performances; and
  • Provide a listening environment for the enjoyment of folk music.
