Legend has it that, in 1968, a secret organization called The Nowhere Collective attempted to draft a ‘Blueprint’ for a future Halifax, which they hoped to realize by 2018. It never happened. We don’t even know if the legend is true.
Downtown Halifax is the stage. Guided by a phone app, you search through the city of the present, considering it’s past and witnessing a series of encounters that evoke the city of tomorrow. In the process, you can be one of the 1000 authors of a New Blueprint for the city’s future.
This is Nowhere is one of 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
Slated for September 2018, This is Nowhere will feature two choirs and a cast of 40 actors throughout downtown Halifax.
