APEGBC Okanagan Branch and UBC Okanagan Earth, Environmental, and Geographic Sciences invite you to join us for a tour of the Social Life of Water museum exhibit. The new BC Water Sustainability Act has led to changes in way water is managed in BC in ways that will require increased dialogue between stakeholders about both technical and social issues. The exhibit offers an opportunity to explore perspectives on water within the Okanagan region.

There will be a guided tour of the exhibit followed by one of the exhibit collaborators. Following the tour there will be a reception with food and a cash bar in the Museum.

The Social Life of Water is a collaborative community exhibit that explores fundamental relationships with water throughout the Okanagan Valley. The exhibition uses art, audio, and visual media, and storytelling to explore the diverse meanings that water holds and has held for the many communities, cultures, and interest groups in the valley over time. The exhibition will take visitors through a journey of the Okanagan watershed, exploring relationships we have had with the watershed over time. In addition to exploring the past and present, the exhibition will examine our relationship with water in the future, inviting participants to imagine how a responsible relationship with water might look.
