This FREE event is the first public viewing of the documentary, written, directed and produced by Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication students, tells our AZ water story and launches the local Water/Ways program.
For those who are just starting this journey with us, AZ Water/Ways explores the centrality of water in our lives including its effect on the environment and climate, its practical role in agriculture and economic planning, and its impact on culture and spirituality. AZ Water/Ways is made possible in Arizona by Arizona Humanities and the Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives and School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. AZ Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils. For more, see http://azhumanities.org/water-ways/.
The Black Canyon Heritage Park /Cañon Elementary School District 50 is one of 12 Arizona local sites to host the AZ Water/Ways over a two-year period. Each site has the exhibit for 6 weeks; the exhibit runs December 14, 2019 through January 26, 2020 at the Cañon Elementary School. We plan to have a series of events leading up to the exhibit.
