During these 3 weeks, there were over 10,500 students reached with inspire messaging via Unity Day presentations and over 2,200 students reached with inspire messaging via in depth Unity Day workshops.

One mural was painted in Halifax and the team held a community showcase event in both Halifax and New Brunswick. The artists also got to participate in their crafts outside of Unity at local events. Adrian Bernard (Switch B) was invited to headline a poetry slam where as Jessey Pacho (Phade) and Rock (Erin zimerman) were invited to paint one of Halifax’s legal graffiti walls.

Overall, this tour was a HUGE success, complete with a promposal (see above!). On the local front, 7 unity days have happened in Ontario since the east coast tour, utilizing new recruits partnered with seasoned unity veterans to execute these events. One mural was done locally, with another 3 tentatively to happen between April & May. In March a Unity team will be delivering a Unity Day tour to Fort McMurray and the same in May, both for 3 weeks, utilizing a newly created skit as a core piece of these Unity Days.
