Seeing Hidden Water
October 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Emma Marris will talk about the future of fresh water. She will cover global and local challenges as increasing populations struggle to share a finite amount of water. She’ll delve into one of the biggest challenges for those who want to talk about freshwater: much of it is hidden. Come to gain an understanding of the state of freshwater in the Deschutes and Klamath basins and around the world, and leave with a set of concrete actions to take and new ways to visualize the Earth’s hidden water.
This presentation complements the exhibit, Water Tables, featuring works by Pat Clark on display at Bend Art Center and the COCC Library from October 5 – November 25.
Co-hosted by The Nancy R. Chandler Visiting Scholar Program at COCC Foundation, Bend Art Center and Coalition for the Deschutes.
