Join us for a celebration & roundtable-style conversation about some new artist and community-led collaborations emerging from Water Bar & Public Studio!
For the past year, Freshwater Society and Water Bar & Public Studio have been working together with local artists and organizers on "Tending Our Shared Waters" -- a pilot project supported with an Action Grant from Mississippi Watershed Management Organization.
The purpose of this pilot project was to ask how cultural storytelling from within local communities could help to engage local residents and water professionals with water science and policy, using the Water Bar as a platform to convene and connect.
The results of this project include deeper relationships, emerging creative and community projects on water, and a framework for a new One Water Hub for Climate and Cultural Resilience that will put social space and artist-led cultural work 'upstream' in efforts to shape community-based water and climate advocacy.
Join Water Bar artists and partners for a celebration and public conversation about the learning and possibilities that emerged from Tending Our Shared Waters; And hear directly from artists, water advocates, cultural organizers, and neighbors about what lies ahead for this intersection of art, science and community work in our north and northeast neighborhoods.
This free event is open to all and will include food as well as supervised play space for children. If there is anything else we can do to make this event more comfortable or accessible to you, please reach out to say hello.
