World AIDS Day Vigil Halifax

On Wednesday, Dec 1, the AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia will be hosting the 2021 Halifax World AIDS Day Vigil.

This year the Vigil will be both in-person and virtual. To attend either option advance registration is required. The ceremony starts at 7:00pm

The in-person Vigil is being held at the Italian Cultural Center, located at 2629 Agricola Street in Halifax. ASL will be provided. A scent-free policy is in place for this event. The space is accessible, on a bus route, and has street parking. 

The virtual aspect of the Vigil will be avialable via Zoom. ASL will be live-streamed as part of the Zoom feed.

ACNS is pleased to announce that Arthur "Dave" Miller will be the guest speaker at this year's Vigil. Dave has been involved in HIV/AIDS work both locally and nationally for many years. He is currently a Community Health Educator and works in Atlantic First Nation Communities with Healing Our Nations, and is also the Atlantic HIV Stigma Index Coordinator with REACH Nexus at the MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions. 

All are welcome to join us as we remember and celebrate the lives of individuals living with HIV/AIDS who have passed away in Nova Scotia. The night will include the Reading of the Names and a candle-lighting ceremony to honour their lives. There will be musical performances, poetry, and more.
