QUIET PARADE

Hosted by MSVU Art Gallery, Eyelevel

Organized by Aislinn Thomas, in collaboration with MSVU Art Gallery and with support from Eyelevel, QUIET PARADE is a low-stimulation parade and celebration taking place taking place in Kjipuktuk/Halifax on October 15 from 2-3pm AST as part of Nocturne 2022. As its name suggests, QUIET PARADE will be a parade but also a platform to experience a vibrant, extravagant, sensory-friendly event that embraces access as a shared and interdependent practice. QUIET PARADE seeks to embody a quiet that interrupts the noise of the city, experimenting with new ways of collectively creating and sharing space.

Date: Saturday, October 15 at 2:00pm Location: Fort Needham Memorial Park – park map with route below **Rain Date: **Sunday, October 16 at 2:00pm

Accessibility

While QUIET PARADE centers low-sensory accessibility, it’s important that everyone who wishes to participate is able to do so. To help ensure an enjoyable and accessible experience for all parade attendees and participants, organizers have created an Access Guide with information on the many aspects of the parade, event site and access supports and resources available. The Access Guide and more information about QUIET PARADE is available at https://www.msvuart.ca/exhibition/quiet-parade/

Eyelevel is an arts worker/artist-run organization mandated to present and support the development of socially-relevant and thought-provoking artistic practices locally, regionally and nationally. Eyelevel supports artists through residencies, mentorship, publishing and presentation outside of a traditional gallery context that is accompanied by care-oriented and trauma-informed artistic, professional and personal support. Eyelevel aims to raise public awareness and capacity of our local arts community; particularly artists and arts workers who have been historically underserved and misrepresented in the contemporary art dialogue. Eyelevel strives to be a connector between artists, communities and the broader public, to constantly question the balance of power and work against systemic oppression and discrimination by centring anti-violence and pro-survivor practices. Eyelevel works in treaty to build a more inclusive and caring world through art, and to advance positive change within the arts through its operations, policies and programming.
