The Kindness Project

The Laurier Library in partnership with Neruda Arts will launch the Kindness Project on Friday November 12th, 2021.

The Laurier Library in partnership with Neruda Arts will launch the Kindness Project on Friday November 12th, 2021, which is an opportunity to join hands (safely) in transforming our feelings of fear, anxiety, and loneliness associated with the COVID-19 pandemic to those of comfort, hope, and unity, and to engage our community safely in building bridges between the Laurier community and the community at large.

The Kindness Project - Music in the Library for our Community will bring a mobile stage to various locations within the Waterloo Region between M Monday November 15th and Wednesday November 27th to share music and positive messages of kindness and hope from the Laurier Library, Laurier’s Faculty of Music Community Music program, and Neruda Arts. The mobile stage is equipped with a large screen that will display pre-recorded contributions from Laurier’s Faculty of Music students and faculty, greetings from Laurier’s President and the University Librarian, and the library staff.

The mobile stage will travel to various neighbourhoods and community spaces where people have limited access to local arts programs, carrying with it a message of kindness, healing and love.

The online launch on Friday November 12th, 2021, will include a sneak peek of our mobile stage, will feature a short music video trailer, and the project itinerary with an indication of various stops. You will hear from Laurier Library, Neruda Arts and other supporters of this unprecedented project.
