The newest art installation in Bancroft will start to take shape this week.

The Countdown Public Art Project will begin a mosaic build where the public will put various parts of the piece together. Tents will be set up for people to build the installation while maintaining public health rules. Those who registered to attend the event will be guided on what to do.

The new installation will honour those who suffer gender-based violence and will be located in Millenium Park. The project is a joint venture between Maggie’s Resource Centre and Red Dress Productions. The public build event is the last step in creating the piece, and the final unveiling will take place on September 24th.
