Our three different walking tours along Black Creek and one online workshop will weave together community history, visits to community gardens, thousands of years of Indigenous history in the area, music and dance to celebrate the aliveness of the Creek and its ravine.
The Living Creek: an immersive dance experience taking place along Black Creek in our community. Centred around the theme of animism and art, M-DO/KathakToronto instructor Joanna de Souza, spoken word poet Ayesha Khan, and a troupe of talented Kathakas will teach those joining this walk about the ancient Goddess Saraswati. We’ll share tales of this goddess of art, wisdom and nature who is also the namesake of a long-disappeared river in India. Honouring the feminine and the sacredness of water, the walk will culminate in a multicultural moon ceremony, performed under the April full moon around a sacred fire. 2-4 PM
