Our three-part Water Wednesdays series took place in October and featured local experts talking local water: from algae blooms to zebra mussels and everything in between.
We recorded each event and are excited to now present three highlight videos!
Special thanks to our Water Wednesdays sponsor, Desjardins Financial Security Investments Inc., to our special guests – and of course, to everyone who joined us in Assiniboine Park for these lively conversations.
Oct. 5 – Frankly, Lake Winnipeg, no one gives a damn: Public perceptions and why they matter – with special guests:
We’ll be speaking about Lake Winnipeg while surrounded by Winnipeg Beach artist Gayle Halliwell’s painting, part of Facing Impedimenta, a new show featuring work by Halliwell and Rosemary Miguez.
Learn about the threats to Lake Winnipeg’s health, the solutions to these challenges and what you can do - all while surrounded by art inspired by “the beauty and the tragedy” that is our great lake. Make sure to leave time to chat with the artist and explore the exhibition!
Join us in Assiniboine Park this October for a three-part series featuring local experts talking local water: from algae blooms to zebra mussels and everything in between.
We’ve invited journalists, researchers, policy-makers, advocates and on-the-ground practitioners – an eclectic group of people with a diversity of experiences and perspectives. Over the course of three uniquely different nights, we’ll be picking their brains about the challenges facing our shared waters and the opportunities for solutions.
Three Wednesdays. Three themes. Three lively conversations.
