Awen’ Gathering Circle Opening

After five short months, the Awen’ Gathering Circle at Harbourview Park was completed and ready to open on September 7th. A public ceremony was held to introduce this wonderful new feature to the community and celebrate the symbolic start to Collingwood’s Waterfront Master Plan implementation. It was a day of celebration and recognition with traditional and contemporary singers and dancers, a blessing ceremony to provide closure and healing to the work site, and a speech by Dr. Duke Redbird describing the inspiration behind the design.
