2016 Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala: RESPONSE TIME
About the Gala
Presented by Arts Nova Scotia and the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council, the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala is a yearly event that celebrates excellence in artistic achievement, notably in the announcements of two major awards, the Portia White Prize and the Lieutenant Governor's Masterworks Award. Winners of the Prix Grand Pré, the five Established Artists' Award and the Community Arts and Culture Recognition Award are also honoured. Collectively, the awards are worth $90,000.
Ken Schwartz is the 2016 Gala artsitic director. Ken has envisioned an evening called Response Time that will be brought to life with a team of curators.
Response Time is an evening that draws inspiration from the artists and communities being honoured at the 2016 Gala and presents new art installations and performances provoked by their work.
The identity of the “responders”, who they are responding to and in what way will be kept secret from the audience and, indeed, from the award-winners themselves until they are revealed on the evening of the gala.
