Join design leaders and culinary giants
East Coast Living is thrilled to be presenting Dine By Design East, a fabulous showcase of interior design and local cuisine that celebrates many of the top creative minds working in Atlantic Canada today.
Ten top Nova Scotia design groups have each been assigned a 10-by-10-foot blank canvas in which to unleash their imagination and create a spectacular dining room space. A top local chef has been matched with each designer to create a special menu inspired by the dining room.
Everything will come together in a dazzling Gala evening on Thursday October 3 at 6 p.m. We invite you to come out and celebrate the incredible dining room designs and sample the delicious food. The designers and chefs will be there discussing what inspired their creations, making it a wonderful chance to see—and taste—the results of their hard work.
The Gala also features six pop-up galleries with a great selection of local artwork available for purchase, a silent auction, as well as wine, beer and spirit samples from the region, plus much more.
Proceeds from Dine By Design East will benefit design education at NSCAD University in memory of Amber Harkins, former editor and creative director of East Coast Living who passed away from cancer last year.
The event takes place in a transformed Olympic Community Centre at 2304 Hunter Street in Halifax. The design spaces will be open for public viewing October 2 to 6 from noon to 8 p.m. each evening, and from noon to 6 p.m. on the weekend.
Please join us by purchasing tickets for the Gala evening and for General Admission viewings. Visit the Dine By Design East website to learn more about this unique event. You can follow us on Twitter at @DBDEast.
