The Halifax Art Boat Project – Rollover Celebration

(Friday, February 14, 2014) – The Halifax Regional Municipality in partnership with the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Waterfront Development, Halifax Art Boat Project, Eyelevel Gallery and the Khyber Centre for the Arts, invites residents to celebrate a milestone in the Halifax Art Boat project, on Tuesday, February 18.

The Halifax Art Boat is a community project that invites people of all ages and abilities to hand-build a traditional cargo boat on the historic Halifax waterfront. The boat will then be used as a year-round performance art piece, sustainable off grid living model, artist-in-residence housing and waterfront art gallery.

The hull of the boat has been built and members of the public are invited to help “roll over” the boat, so construction can continue on the inside. The boat will be rolled over by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. People of all ages are invited to come witness this turning point in the construction, meet Art Boat volunteers, enjoy a hot drink and some family friendly art inspired activities, and learn about this vibrant community project.

Tuesday, February 18. Doors open 4:30 p.m. Rollover starts at 5:30 p.m. Maritime Museum of the Atlantic – South Boat Shed, Halifax Waterfront (Note: The Maritime Museum is open until 8 pm on Tuesday evening and admission is free after 5 p.m. http://maritimemuseum.novascotia.ca/event/castaway-chronometer )
