Stepping Stones Across The Shield

From June 12-20, 2023, The Countdown Public Art Project presented Stepping Stones Across The Shield: a series of community art workshops co-hosted with local organizational partners who have been integral to the Countdown project since its arrival in North Hastings in 2020.
