You- the residents of the Catskills -are the first stewards of drinking water for 8.5 million people as it begins its journey to New York City. Catskill Waters wants to hear your stories and gather your knowledge of stewardship. What do you love about your land? How does your land change through the seasons? What is your favorite memory?
Story gathering is only the first step of this exciting project. After developing an archive of stories, we'll select a few from the storytellers and match them with artists to collaborate on the creation of new works. The process and works will be presented at Chrch Project Space later this year before traveling south along the Hudson Valley and finally to New York City.
If you have stories to tell, knowledge to share, and creative talents to employ, please come to one of our three information sessions and join us on our journey!
