A few weeks ago our Northside team had the opportunity to participate in a powerful event at The Story Garden in the Folwell neighborhood of North Minneapolis. The event, called Let the Water Speak, was co-hosted by Dani Tietjen from the Folwell Neighborhood Association and Marcus Kar from Youth Farm. Local artists, poets, writers, speakers, and musicians gathered to discuss the importance of water and the barriers that have been put up around this precious resource, marginalizing groups of people throughout Minnesota and the world.
The Water Main Project, of Minnesota Public Radio, joined the community to gather around water, with filmmaker D.A. Bullock capturing the evening in a beautiful three part production.
A picture speaks a thousand words, and a video speaks much more. Check out the beautiful faces, food, and sounds that were present at Let the Water Speak:
