The Small Planet Gathering

For the second year, Rock Barra Retreat is hosting a full weekend of activities celebrating action on climate change. The Small Planet Gathering will take place August 19–20 and will feature a songwriters’ circle, film, outdoor sculpture-making, round circle discussions, stargazing and more.

The award-winning film Bluefin will screen August 19. Bluefin is a tale of epic stakes set in North Lake, PEI. With stunning cinematography, director John Hopkins documents why the normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans while scientific assessments claim stocks are down by 90 percent. At the heart of this documentary lies a passionate concern by all about the fate of the giant bluefin tuna.

In the afternoons on August 19 and 20, adults and children are invited to join Brittany Talarico and Birdmouse to create an outdoor sculpture made from beach finds. Other activities include round circle discussions with representatives from environmental organizations and late night stargazing. 

The weekend will close with a songwriters’ circle featuring Dennis Ellsworth, Mathias Kom (Burning Hell), Emily MacLellan and Teresa Doyle. All events are free except the Sunday evening concert.
