Water Conversations: Walking as Witnessing


The community is invited to the “Water Conversations: Walking as Witnessing” lecture by Anna MacLeod from 5–6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, in the Torian Room of duPont Library.
Sculptor Anna MacLeod has traveled the world examining the legacy of industrialism on sacred water bodies and potable water and the resilience of communities facing insecure water futures and climate change uncertainty. She has completed a series of sculptures titlted “Water Conversations” that explore social, political, cultural and spiritual attitudes towards water in Broken Hill, Australia, the Gobi Desert, Velez Blanco in Spain, and Sante Fe, N.M. Her interdisciplinary work examines transcultural dynamics in water stewardship and adds to Sewanee’s “Year of Water” series.
The lecture is sponsored by the University Lectures Committee, Environmental Arts and Humanities, and Enviromental Studies
