Venue and Facilities People's Summit events will be happening all over the city during the week of June 10 to June 17. In order to make things a little easier for you we have focused many of our activities in one area of the city which we have dubbed the Green Zone. The Nova Scotia Community College, (Halifax Campus), 1825 Bell Rd., has graciously offered us space in their building for the week.
The Community College is fully accessible and offers a wide array of spaces for events, ranging from workshop spaces in classrooms, to a 140 - seat Auditorium. The People's Summit Alternative Media Centre and a People's Summit Coordinating Office will also be located at the College.
As well, we have the grounds around the Community College for theatre skits, food venders markets, concerts, etc. A People's Park! We hope to provide you with a diverse program of activities to fill your week. Included in the outdoor portion of the Green Zone is the South Commons (the triangle of land between Trollope St. and Bell Rd.).
Some People's Summit events will be located around the city at galleries, theatres and at Saint Mary's University and Dalhousie University campuses. The daily schedule in the program (available at all downtown locations) will provide you with the details of exactly where the events are located.
The Community College is fully operational from September through June, and has graduated 15,000 students since 1950. The College offers a wide program of training courses with an emphasis on local community development. The People's Summit offers its most heartfelt thanks to the College, especially Phillip Davison (Vice Principal), for all their work in making the People's Summit Green Zone come to life. Have a great week!
