Global Water Dances

This global art initiative will raise awareness for the importance of clean water

Clean water. It’s essential for human life, and there is less of it to go around every year. To raise awareness of the importance of clean water in our lives, the city of Minneapolis will participate this month in a global art initiative spanning 50 cities and six continents. Called Global Water Dances, the event engages dancers all over the world in a series of choreographed performances inspired by water. In Minneapolis, the audience will stand on the Stone Arch Bridge and watch as dozens of dancers—atop buildings and grain elevators, in kayaks, on the doors of the lock, and in Gold Medal Park—pay homage to the liquid that sustains us. June 25.
