What would happen if our streets and public spaces became a place for conversations around our waters? What if young Canadians, the leaders of tomorrow, led this movement?
The Great Waters Challenge wants to find out!
We are launching "Engaging the Great Waters - Connecting Water & Young Canadians" - 16 workshops hosted across the country, open to the public and players of the Great Waters Challenge. From Vancouver to St. John's, and Gjoa Haven to Quebec City, this #Canada150 initiative offers young Canadians the opportunity to connect to water and make visible how water has shaped their identity and that of their community.
In PEI, we are proud to partner with the River Clyde Pageant (http://www.riverclydepageant.com/) - a traveling performance that tells a fantastical story about the history of a tidal river and the environmental issues affecting the sustainability of all Prince Edward Island waterways. We will be hosting this workshop and another one in July as part of planning a public intervention/action to celebrate water.
We are looking for young leaders, ideators, water-passionates, community engagers, animators, artists, and environmental visionaries for this "meeting of the minds" workshop on March 25th.
Our task? To animate a public space in your community through art and placemaking to celebrate water and our connections to it.
· Meet a diverse group of young Canadians in your community
· Be inspired by a local expert on water facts and stories
· Co-create with an artist on a public intervention
· Get a training on public engagement
· Take charge, plan and execute a group-led "action day", to educate and animate change in your community!
Lunch will be provided.
