Connected by Water

Join Connected by Water’s project team to explore the Comox Lake watershed through maps, history, ecology, climate change, human use and more. This family friendly (suggested 8+) presentation explores the source of our drinking water in the Comox Valley through photos and stories and uncovers how each of us is truly connected by water. Then we pull out the art supplies and draw the watershed, waterways and places where we connect to water in the Comox Valley.

This community engagement event is a partnership between the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s “The Water” convergent program and the CVRD’s Connected by Water project which aims to build connection, capacity and community in support of watershed protection and water conservation in the Comox Valley.

A REPOSITORY FOR WATER / invites community contributions + collaborations throughout the In The Water convergent program, in the Gather:Place.

A Repository for Water holds a collection of multi-media work, community stories, water samples, resource links, and the contributions of various local and more distant artists. The incubator is a source for collective consideration of our memory, perceptions, experiences, concerns and relationships with the water that surrounds and permeates everything in our world. This incubator project begins with contributions from artists: Liz Carter, bobbi denton, Tom Elliott, Kim Holmes, Spencer Shehan-Kalina, Bran Mackie, Gabrielle Moore, Renee Poisson, Sara Vipond, Project Watershed (Emily Carr student collaboration). Ongoing individual and community contributions are welcomed during the run of the convergent program In the Water (until February 29th). Bring water samples from a source that is special to you. Include a short story / memory / poem / drawing / photograph about the source of the water, for inclusion in this community incubator.
