Renfrew Collingwood Arts Pow Wow

/uploads/5r/m-/5rm-L5OeyrSCmyfCM8i5IQ/powsymbol2.jpg

The Renfrew Collingwood Arts Pow Wow: was formed in 1999 as an initiative of the Collingwood Neighbourhood House, under the banner of 'Building Community Through Cultural Expression'. There were many postive outcomes which came about in the Collingwood as a result of this initiative. The Collingwood Music Club and The Multicultural Artists Gathering (MAGa) were formed; three Slocan Park Festivals were held; a lighted walkway with a mosaic path was installed in Slocan Park as part of the 'Art in the Park' initiative; a large eagle totem pole named 'the Guardian of the Park' was carved by the 'Collingwood Carvers' and erected next to this path . The carvers also completed a 'Multicultural Gateway' for the Collingwood Neighbourhood House. Also, the PowWow contributed to the development of the now named 'Renfrew Collingwood News' newspaper, helping it grow in size, quality and circulation from 2000 copies to 10,000.

Today, the Music Club and MAGa are still running strong, self-sustained by the interest of their participants; The 'Art in the Park' group continues to improve upon Slocan Park; Carmen Rosen, the PowWow's chief 'Celebration Artist' is working on another community festival - the much anticipated 'Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival'; the Renfrew Collingwood News continues to develop.
