Tomorrow 11am Red Embers opening, Allen gardens.

Red Embers will transform Allan Gardens in downtown Toronto. For the first time in the city’s history, monumental art by Indigenous womxn artists will be displayed for free to the public. The banners have been created in Toronto and across Canada by commissioned artists and will float from 13 tall charred-black gates throughout the park. Two of the banners will face the Victorian-era glass Palm House, while the others will straddle the major pathways of the park, allowing visitors to admire them from all directions and walk below them. The local eastern cedar, hand-peeled structures will measure about 18 feet high with vertical posts that cross at the top. Red Embers opens to the public with a smudging ceremony, drumming and guest speakers on June 8, 2019, 11 AM. All are welcome! Red Embers honours the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and the strength of community resilience
