Water Talks


May 24 2022


5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Betsy Damon, in conversation with Dr. Edward Cameron.

In the foreword by Dr. Jane Goodall, she writes “In this book, Betsy tells the story of her 35 years as an artist/activist for water, her successes, and her discouragement as she watched water sites further degrade. Consistently she expresses confidence that humans can come together to solve our many challenges – that basically we will, and we must do this….”

Artist, activist, and teacher Betsy Damon has focused on virtually every aspect of water during the past four decades, from the essence of water drops to whole water systems and their connections to life on earth. Over the years, she has borne witness to the decline in water quality around the world as a result of human activities. Her book explores our interdependence with water in every aspect of life and that genuine, lasting solutions require a fundamental understanding and empirical knowledge of water and its role in all life on Earth.

This program joins Betsy in conversation with Dr. Edward Cameron, a specialist in climate change and human rights. They will discuss her lifelong work and her just released book, Water Talks. 

Registration is $18 in advance, $22 at the door.
