These are difficult times for all of us. For those of us working in the culture and heritage sector, this means rethinking public gatherings for the time being. At QAHN, in an effort to do our part to limit the risk of spreading of COVID-19, all public events scheduled for this project in 2020 are postponed until further notice.
Between last October and the beginning of this month, performers, organizers, and community groups across the province generously shared their time and talents with the Different Tune project, inviting me into their communities to document the ways they come together as a community through musical culture and dance. Their enthusiasm sharing their music, insights, and ideas was truly heartwarming. You can expect much more of this content to appear here, on our Facebook page, and our YouTube channel in the months ahead.
We are still committed to celebrating, documenting, and sharing the sounds and stories of musical culture in our communities throughout these difficult times. Rest assured we will comply with all public health directives and precautions to protect the well-being of everyone involved in this project—and that includes you, our audience, most of all.
