Walking the Debris Field: Aftermath (April 18, 2015)

On April 18, 2015, Narratives in Space+Time Society (NiS+TS) conducted a public walk art event, entitled “Aftermath”, attracting more than 75 people. Starting at the historic marker in front of Veith House (3115 Veith Street in Halifax) the walk ended near Windsor Street and Chebucto Road approximately two hours later, taking participants to several unusual locations. Aftermath focused on sites and stories associated with the first minutes, hours and days after the Halifax Explosion of December 6, 1917. Making their way out of the north end of Halifax towards the west end, participants traveled through songs and sounds, lights, photographs and texts, memories and stories generated by the events of the Explosion’s wake.

Please see this video, “Narratives in Space + Time Society: April 18, 2015”, showing more of what was seen and heard.

For more information on the walk, including a map and itinerary, please view this brochure that was given to participants at the beginning of the walk.
