Waterways – the Past, Present and Future

Water Ways - the Past, Present and Future is a four-year Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funded research project in Canada that will be represented in a community-based interactive media exhibition that explores the nature of human-water relationships in the Okanagan Valley, extending into the Columbia River System and its tributaries. The artwork employs the creative and innovative use of interactive media and artistic software design to create a platform for dialogue across diverse community-based, poetic, traditional and scientific water knowledges. The project includes the collection and synthesis of water knowledges of the past and present, and employs community-engaged research to envision sustainable water futures.
