Elemental FestivalKagawong, Ontario
Multi/Interdisciplinary, Visual Arts — Behind-the-scenes, Talks and Discussion
Elemental Festival is 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 40 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.
This activity is in English.
This activity is wheelchair accessible.

4elements Living Arts
4elements Living Arts (4e) is a multidisciplinary, cross-cultural, non-profit arts organization on Manitoulin Island which began in 2002 as a response to the need for creative spaces for artists, art exhibitions and programming in our local communities. In 2009 we incorporated as a formal non-profit organization, with a focus on programs that integrate the arts, environmental and land issues focusing on a place-based and community-based approach.
