After the success of our #PlayMeHFX program, we created #PlayMeNovaScotia; a travelling piano over the summer of 2017 that celebrated the province of Nova Scotia and the communities within it while reconnecting people with public spaces, increasing safety, supporting local businesses, and building a sense of community.

One piano traveled to different communities in Nova Scotia, celebrating what we love about Nova Scotia at each stop by completing the sentence “I ♥ Nova Scotia because…​” on the chalkboard-painted piano. Using the hashtag #PlayMeNovaScotia, each answer to “I ♥ Nova Scotia because…​” was shared locally, across the province, and around the world. Follow the hashtag online to see the story of the piano!

This project was funded by Province of Nova Scotia through the Nova Scotia 150 Forward Fund.

PBJ Design acknowledges that our projects take place in Mi’Kma’ki, on the traditional unceded lands of the Mi’kmaq People. Placemaking is nothing without the land and communities we work in, and we acknowledge that this place is Mi’Kma’ki. For more information, click here.
