About The Compassion Project:

Hi, I’m Celeste Snowber, and I want to invite your participation in a community art project by the New West Hospice Society and the Arts Council of New Westminster, with programming support from the New Media Gallery (NMG Lab).

Let’s consider the loss and grief and recognize the uncertainty that people have faced during this pandemic. You are invited to bring an embodied expression to these times including passion, whimsy or joy to New Westminster; to draw the community out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Between now and February 2022, I encourage you to film a short video (up to a minute) of yourself engaged in creative movement that can be posted to Instagram.

Include the tags #DanceToTheEndofLove along with @newwesthospice, @newmediagallery, @nmglab, & @artscouncilNW. Be sure to tag one friend as well.

In the Spring of 2022, we’re going to edit the submissions into a longer presentation accompanied by some exciting programming. To learn more about the project and how you can contribute, visit: acnw.ca/compassionproject
