Thursday 11 – Saturday 13 June 2020
There is a story in every container in Museum of Water, a growing collection of water gathered by artist Amy Sharrocks. 2020 marks the beginning of Toronto’s own Museum of Water – what are the stories we need to hear from this extraordinary city?
This year, Museum of Water invites you to contribute digitally to The Water We Would Have Brought.
If you could keep one water, what would it be? Unconstrained by geography, possibility and access, what water would you bring? Send a message, make a video, and tell the story of the water you choose.
During the virtual festival, Amy Sharrocks will be joined by local environmental activists to delve deeper into some of the major water issues facing local communities in Toronto today.
On 12 June at 6.45pm Toronto time/11.45pm UK time Amy Sharrocks is in conversation with Mark Calzavara, Regional Organizer of Council of Canadians – a grassroots social action organisation advocating for clean water, fair trade, green energy, public health care and democracy. They are discussing watersheds and water protectors, water advisories, pipelines, Great Lakes and pollution. Check out their brilliant Blue Communities initiative, which aims to ban bottled water in municipal buildings and support water rights and public care. Register for live chat here.
