Upcoming Events

Our Common Woods Artist Walk

Sunday, November 5th, 2:00 – 4:00

Join the artists of Our Common Woods as they lead a public walk to celebrate completion of their art installations on the Halifax Common.
Our Common Woods has been a partnership between Halifax Regional Municipality and The Deanery Project … nearly four years in the making!
Artists Alan Syliboy, Erin Philp, Theo Heffler, Gary Staple and Steve Sekerak along with others who carried this vision into reality will be on hand to talk about the project, what it has meant for them personally, and for our communities.
The intention of Our Common Woods has been to put into practice principles of environmental sustainability, place-making, and relationship building with our forests, efforts all very dear the The Deanery Project and our partners.
It is a project we are incredibly proud of, and see as an opportunity to draw attention to the importance of our urban and rural forests, as well as the many values of public art.
