Countdown Project Unveilings on October 15, 2016

Thank you to all who came out to the October 15th monument unveilings in Eganville, Killaloe, and Pikwakanagan First Nation. All photos in this post by Maureen MacMillan.

THE COUNTDOWN PUBLIC ART PROJECT is a community-wide initiative in Renfrew County, Ontario to create a permanent public art monument to honour survivors of sexual violence – the first of its kind in Canada.

This community-wide initiative aims to create public spaces for survivors, and invites vital, but often private, conversations to be more public so that communities can heal from collective trauma, gain insight, and move towards a world free from sexual violence.
