We are honoured to receive a CSLA Award for Planning & Analysis for Gzhe-mnidoo Gi-ta-gaan, Saugeen First Nation Creator’s Garden and Amphitheatre Restoration Master Plan. The Master Plan strategy will support cultural celebrations, educational programming and revenue-generating events throughout the restored landscape. The Master Plan takes advantage of the wonderful assets already on the land: beautifully restored stonework, including the historic Amphitheatre, the monument to Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), and other dry stone installations including a ceremonial Fire Circle.
New facilities and improvements to the Amphitheatre and Gardens prioritize the continued application of community skills as a long-term source of job creation both during the construction process and through the ongoing operations of the site. The Amphitheatre and surrounding dry stone walls will be fully restored in the coming year.
