We’re SO excited to present this jam-packed Every Day is Earth Day series, focusing on climate action, Indigenous culture and music. Brian Knockwood will lead a drum-making workshop on April 15. Then on April 22, in the afternoon we'll have all these amazing activities. Details below are subject to change, but here's a general outline of the day:
2:30 - drum circle and traditional Mi’kmaq songs workshop with Aaron Prosper
3:30 - Climate-Action songwriting workshop led by Braden Lam and Kim Barlow
5:00 - pop-up choir with Freya Milliken and members of the Queer Community Chorus!
6:00 - Sustainable, local pizza & salad bar supper made by Jenny & Meagan Osburn - Winners of the Select NS Local Food Heroes, 2013. Vegan & gluten-free options.
7:00 - Round-table w Kim Frye of Music Declares Emergency and Braden Lam on Music and Climate Action
8:00 - Midnight - We'll cap the day off with great music and dancing, featuring Braden Lam, John Muirhead, Aaron Prosper, Heather Kelday, Steel Cut Oats, SuperVillain and Keeper E!
This event is open to all-ages, and is a drug-and-alcohol-free event. We'll be serving fancy mocktails and treats for a $2 donation throughout the night, and we'll keep the farmers' market rocking til we all turn into non-GMO organic pumpkins at midnight. You can purchase tickets for the whole event (drum-painting separate), or the evening music only. Tickets for the evening music will also be available at the door. Please pre-purchase if you'd like to attend the Whole Day, so the cooks will know how much food to prepare ahead of time.
We encourage you to bring your own cup or water bottle. There are some mugs on site.
Sorry to announce the Halifax Shuttle has been cancelled due to low reservations.
NOTE: If your budget is tight, buy the Student Ticket. If that's still too $$, just come, and say you're on the guest list. There's room for you. We don't want anyone to miss out on this event because of financial stress.
We'd like to thank Doretta Groenendyk (artwork) and Izra Fitch (design) for the beautiful poster! We also thank our partners for making these events possible, including the Small Change Fund, Music Declares Emergency, and the Town of Wolfville. MIC recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
