4elements Living Arts presents Elemental Festival, an annual site-specific multi-art gathering.
With the support from federal Canada 150 funding, 4elements and Billings Township will see 7 permanent public sculptures and a series of heritage plaques installed throughout the Township this year, creating a ‘Billings Art & Heritage Trail’. Six artists have been chosen via a community engaged selection process; the 7th sculpture will be designed via a facilitated community collaborative design process.
All permanent works will be installed by end of the summer and ‘unveiled’ during Elemental Festival. Festival engagements will encourage consideration of the relations between land, environment/environmental change and reconciliation; acknowledging the important role of the many cultural communities within and adjacent to Billings: the French, the English, and the First Nations.
Taking place September 28th – October 1st in Kagawong on Mnidoo Mnising | Manitoulin Island, Ontario.
