A Ceremony of Completion
Gathering of the Elements at the mouth of the Barwon River from 6pm on Saturday 7 May is a ceremony of completion, acknowledging those elements that came together to support our journey both as individuals and as a community on Mountain to Mouth 2016.
In an expression of gratitude, this ceremony returns the precious water carried in Canoe from Big Rock, across 80 kilometres, to where river meets sea, where freshwater and salt become one, at the point of change and exchange, marking endings and beginnings, acknowledging rhythm and flow, standing in past, present and future, for this one moment together.
