Third Coast Conversations: Dialogues about Water

Implementation of a series of public programs across Michigan that would address the historical, cultural, and environmental impact of water.

Third Coast Conversations: Dialogues about Water in Michigan, will be a series of statewide public conversations taking place in 31 communities over two years that focus on the cultural, social, historical, and environmental factors that connect Michigan’s people to their water. The project will be led by the Michigan Humanities Council in collaboration with their strong network of partner organizations on the ground. The conversation-based project will allow MHC to augment Water/Ways, a Smithsonian Institution Museum on Main Street travelling exhibit that MHC is already bringing to six rural communities in Michigan with populations of 2,000 people or less as part of our regularly scheduled programming. The exhibit topic, as well as ongoing issues concerning drinking water quality in Flint and other communities, presents a unique opportunity to focus attention on the importance of water as Michigan’s most valuable natural resource.
