New Westminster residents are being invited to dance their way through the COVID-19 pandemic and all its associated emotions.

The New West Hospice Society and the Arts Council of New Westminster are inviting everyone to participate in a community art project called Dance to the End of Love.

“Let’s consider the loss and grief and recognize the uncertainty that people have faced during this pandemic,” said a write-up about the project. “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, you’re invited to film a short video (up to a minute) of yourself engaged in creative movement that can be posted to Instagram.

Use the hashtag #DanceToTheEndOfLove and tag @newwesthospice, @newmediagallery, @nmglab and @artscouncilNW, and tag a friend as well.

In the spring of 2022, submissions will be edited into a longer presentation, accompanied by related programming.

The New Media Gallery is providing programming support.
