This symposium brings together a diverse group of practitioners, including artists, designers, activists, scholars, scientists, policy analysts, urban planners, and thinkers to discuss what may well be the most important issue of our time: access to clean water and the fight for environmental justice. Held in partnership with the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the Stamps Gallery and building on themes present in the UMMA exhibition  and Stamps Gallery’s LaToya Ruby Frazier: Flint is Family in Three Acts, The Ways of Water symposium continues to unravel the story of water, its critical role, and the way it connects us all. 

3:30 – 5:00 pm: Session 2 — Intervention and Innovation in Water Infrastructure and Justice Movements Panelists: Alice Jennings, Lisa

This panel features more recent interventions and innovations that have been developed, proposed, and enacted in a shifting water landscape. It examines how artwork, design, community actions (including protest, advocacy, and the development of new organizations), and recent court cases and new laws actively shape our use of and access (or lack thereof) to water. 

Join us after the panel for a reception, performance with The Sister Tour, and an exhibition tour of Watershed featuring artists Kate Levy, Doug Fogelson, Shanna Merola, Bonnie Devine, Rozalinda Borcilă, and Senghor Reid.

  Symposium events are free and open to all. Keynote, additional panelists and complete symposium schedule to be announced. Please contact Jennifer Junkermeier-Khan, Stamps Gallery at jenjkhan@​umich.​edu for additional information or with questions.
