My Water, My Culture
Phoenix, Arizona. The Cultural Arts Coalition in collaboration with AZ Water Association brings a workshop about water to the Grand Avenue historic district on April 21st, 6:00-8:00 p.m. The intended audience is aged 10 to 90. This free, family friendly event responds to three questions:
- What is the state of water locally?
- What is “my” personal relationship with water, my water culture?
- Is there something that I can do to conserve and preserve water for the future?
A water professional from AZ Water Association will share information about the local sources of water, how it is stored, treated, and moved from source to homes and businesses. Artist-engineer Mitra Kamali will lead storytelling through art-making in a way that is accessible and fun for everyone—even if you don’t consider yourself an artist. And after the storytelling, we’ll talk and build a list of ways that we might improve water conditions in our communities.
The event is hosted by Snood City Styles, 1018 Grand Avenue, Phoenix. Come to Grand Avenue early and have a bite to eat at one of the restaurants before the workshop. Pre-registration encouraged at www.culturalartscoalitionaz.org/waterandculture/.
This project comes from the heart and vision of Mitra Kamali Fine Arts, and is funded in part by the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
