Never been to a Heist Takeover Party? Here’s what we want you to know:
1. We dress up - and we encourage you to as well! Dress in what makes you shine from the inside out. Drag, high fashion, weird, bright, silly, outrageous, makeup, track suit - it doesn’t matter as long as you look and feel good on your own terms. Your fellow party goers will appreciate the energy your look brings AND we’ll do a prize giveaway at the end of the night for the best dressed!

2. Heist will be your guides during this social, interactive event. There’ll be time to chat, performances, DJ music (dancing!) and our favourite party game Lip Sync Roulette with pre-selected participants. We encourage you to watch the event with your camera on so we can see and feel your beautiful presence, but if that kind of thing makes you anxious you can turn your camera off and just enjoy the party like a live TV show - it’s totally your call!

What is Lip Sync Roulette?!
Selected participants (chosen in advance) agree to lip sync a song but the catch is they don't know what the song will be! Unrehearsed unexpected magic! A couple rounds are reserved for those who wish to opt in during the event. 

HEIST produces the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala 2020

Presented by Arts Nova Scotia and the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council, the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala is a yearly event that celebrates excellence in artistic achievement, notably in the announcements of two major awards, the Portia White Prize and the Lieutenant Governor's Masterworks Award. Winners of the Prix Grand Pré, the Established Artist Awards, the Emerging Artist Awards, the Indigenous Artist Award and the  Creative Community Impact Awards are also honoured. Collectively, the awards are worth $95,000.

This year, the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala comes to you as a special live broadcast at liveheist.com/livestream at 7:00pm on Saturday, November 14. Produced by Heist at the Bus Stop Theatre, the free-to-view event will feature live hosts, performances, a DJ, presenters,  appearances from the celebrated award winners, as well as unique pre-recorded segments and performances. While the hosts, ASL interpreter, and DJ will be live in the studio, guests and performers will be “beamed in” live from their homes and incorporated into a fantastical digital stage designed by Heist and featuring artwork by esteemed Nova Scotian artists. 

Artistic Vision


As vital creative Nova Scotians, we must be willing to look into the past to see ourselves in the making. Nova Scotia is a name barely 150 years old, Mi’kma’ki is a name more than 10,000 years old. The actions, stories, and art of our ancestors is who we are, and our own actions, stories and art is who we will be. The past affects the present affects the future. GENERATIONS represents a snapshot in time: a group selfie for our archives in which we can highlight our achievements, celebrate beauty and diversity, critique our choices and decisions, and create a deliberate ripple forward in time to our future selves. Amidst a year of societal lockdowns, global pandemics and civil rights movements, Nova Scotians are also processing great loss. We must commit to look at how we contribute to our communities and the society around us. What ripples will you create?
