Participate in the parade

We need your help to make this pride season bigger and prouder than ever before! This year, staff and students have the opportunity to participate in the pride parade, and NSCAD will be providing a huge trailer that staff and students can decorate collaboratively.  We are looking for anyone who is interested in providing ideas and support in making this float come to life for the parade on July 20th.

We are also looking for staff and students who are interested in participating on the day of the parade.  Dawn your rainbows, fringe and glitter, because participating in the parade will require you to dance, sing and have fun while we strut down the pavement to the musical stylings of our own personal DJ. We will be handing out NSCAD swag, singing at the tops of our lungs, and showing NSCAD pride!

Please email Neive Shannon-Dwyer if you are interested in getting involved.
