Please join us to witness and participate in
Reflects in Water
an art-action about water rights
Saturday, July 16, 2-5pm
Waterfront Drive Active Transportation Path
and Stephen Juba Park near James Avenue
This art-action will use unpotable water acquired from Shoal Lake to highlight critical concerns about access to clean water from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the community at ‘the other end of the pipe’.
reflects in water began as a WITH ART collaboration between Peace Alliance Winnipeg and artist Leah Decter, and has evolved to include a number of participating organizations including Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, Museum of Canadian Human Rights Violations, Friends of Shoal Lake 40, Decolonizing Network Manitoba and 13 Fires. Through this collaboration the project has focused on water issues as they intersect with citizens of Winnipeg and the community of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation; a community significantly impacted as the source of Winnipeg’s water.
reflects in water is taking place in conjunction with the 13 Fires Winnipeg conversation series. Together these two participatory events offer a unique opportunity for a rich and challenging public dialogue.
