Honouring survivors of sexual violence

The Countdown Public Art Legacy Project is a series of pebble mosaics that honour sexual assault survivors across Ontario. The first of its kind in Canada, the project launched in 2016 after the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County invited Red Dress Productions to bring its vision into being.

Workshops were held with residents, municipal bodies, local partners, and artists in Pembroke, Eganville, Killaloe, and Pikwàkanagàn First Nation to create the first four monuments. This project will continue into 2022.
