Many people were needed to facilitate the event on 5/12/2024 and to raise consciousness about the cause. Yes, we are planning another game, coming soon!

We had many volunteers taking part as a chess piece, attendees, photographers, videographers, students and sponsors to show support and patronize this live mix of art, community, charity and culture. To support the 2024 iteration of Live Chess and next years event:

Matt Paul applied for the permit to host the event on Parliament Hill on May 12, 2024 from 2-5 pm subject to Parliament Rules regarding the use of Parliament which govern all participants. The permit was not transferrable however the event “Live Chess on Parliament” was associated with Matt Paul in connection with the event in terms of communication, marketing and the purpose of raising funds to support Alzheimer’s Society of Canada outside of the 2-5 pm period on May 12, 2024 when we made use of the area in front of the Peace Tower.

Matt Paul notified and received permission and support from Alzheimer’s Society of Canada to conduct the “Live Chess on Parliament” promotional activities with the understanding that it will benefit the work of this organization to the extent that these benefits are realizable and transferable. It is the hope that people will visit and donate directly through the Society’s portal, get involved or at minimum raise their consciousness about the important work of the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada and their various local units perform locally.
