WHAT DOES WATER MEAN TO YOU?
Life sustaining, thirst quenching, essential; water is precious for all living beings. The Social Life of Water is a collaborative community exhibit that explores fundamental relationships with water. The exhibition will use art, audio and visual media, and storytelling to explore the diverse meanings that water holds and has held for the many communities, cultures and interest groups over time. This multi-disciplinary exhibit extends beyond the reaches of a traditional museum display, calling on the community to join in this pertinent discussion. The exhibition will take visitors through a journey of watersheds, exploring relationships we have had with rivers over time. In addition to exploring the past and present, the exhibition will examine our relationship with water in the future, inviting participants to imagine how a responsible relationship with water might look. This fascinating, immersive exhibit will be on display from November 9, 2021 to December 23, 2021.
We have lined up an exciting speaker series to enhance your enjoyment of this exhibit.
