“This funding will help our artists, technicians and production staff continue to create engaging content that audiences anywhere in the world can watch and enjoy,” said Suzanne Lohnes-Croft, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “We continue to support digital solutions to help the arts and culture sector adapt and rebound from COVID-19, where the reality is that many people have moved their work online.”
Light House Go! will partner with Nova Scotia cultural organizations and individual artists to co-produce a minimum of 20 segments of performance content to share on its streaming service.
