Labour7 (App)

Story

Access Labour7 here.

Labour7 is a 40-minute app-guided walking tour that can be done anywhere, anytime. Think of it as a short stroll during which you run into seven interesting people working in Nova Scotia during the COVID-19 crisis. It is also an archive of their testimonies from August 2020.

A companion piece to “Vista20“, Labour7 was created as part of the 2020 Labour Day programming from Mayworks K’jipuktuk/Halifax: Festival of Working People & the Arts & Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council.

It is free of charge. You need a smartphone and a set of headphones. It is available as a native iOS or Android app, and is also available web-based app through your phone’s web browser.

The app will guide you through the steps required to set forth on your journey. You can do each step at your own pace and can always reset to the start if you wish.

Vista20 is a new version of our earlier Vista app, created in 2019 by Zuppa Theatre Co. and James Tyson for the International Agatha Christie Festival in Torquay, England.

Company

Labour7 was made by Zuppa Theatre Co. and Andrew Burke for Labour Day 2020, presented by the Halifax-Dartmouth District Labour Council in association with Mayworks Kjipuktuk/Halifax.
