Event: Carmel Fine Art and Music Festival
Where: Firemen’s Park, Niagara Falls
Time: 10 am – 3 pm
We are inviting children, youth, and adults to reconnect and reflect on peace and the Niagara River and its watershed as diverse ecosystems through painting and story telling.
The Niagara River is nourished by an intricate array of watercourses that make up one vast watershed. The ebb and flow of water that sustain and connect all those who live on its watershed find their correspondence in the ethical and moral guidelines a society cultivates in order to foster non-violence among human and other-than-human rights-bearers such as animals, plants, forests, wetlands, watersheds, rivers, lakes, and oceans.
This activity aims at engaging children, youth, and adults in creative acts of celebration that contribute to remembering, restoring, renewing, and expanding the connection between society and environment.
