CARRY THE SPARK is a concert bringing together some of Nova Scotia’s finest singer-songwriters, dancers, filmmakers, poets, and visual artists, for a night of beauty, reflection and inspiration.
There is a great legacy of environmental resilience and activism in Mi’kma’ki/Nova Scotia – from communities successfully fighting off a nuclear power plant on the south shore, to the decades of resistance to environmental racism in Pictou Landing and beyond.
There are many great successes to be celebrated, and many battles still to be won. How do we act now, in this moment? What legacies will we leave? We take inspiration from the legacy of Danielle Moore, who embodied a spark of hope, joy and optimism in the face of the climate crisis. Following her example, we invite all to CARRY THE SPARK: to nurture active hope, forge meaningful connections, ignite action, and embody that joy as we face the challenges before us. Join us to delight in live performances and art while learning from mistakes of the past, honouring the progress we are making, and working towards possible futures.
This event is free although there are pay-what-you-will options. Proceeds go to The Ecology Action Centre.
**While performers will be unmasked during performances, we ask that audiences help keep our communities safe and wear masks while watching the show.
