Leaning Towards Water: From Art To Activism – November 8, 2016

A PowerPoint talk by Liz Zetlin.

Part of the Beaver Valley Lifelong Learning Association series: Our Inland Seas.
From fishing to feminism to film, this series will explore life in and on the Great Lakes – the largest fresh water system on earth.

“Everything is water. Everything.”, says Anishinaabe elder and water-walker Pauline Shirt. The likelihood of having enough clean, fresh water is diminishing everywhere. How we treat our water, especially around the Great Lakes, is of vital importance. Attitudes and practices must change. So, for the love of water, this talk will feature poems, personal stories, films and community projects inspired by the Great Lakes watershed. As a member of the international Ecoart collective, Liz hopes this talk will stimulate dialogue and encourage the long-term flourishing of the natural environments in which we are privileged to live.
