Applications to be a part of a 2022 cohort of host sites are being accepted now through July 26. We Are Water MN is a traveling exhibit and community engagement initiative that builds local capacity to support and engage in water restoration and protection.
Local organizations host the exhibit and become an exhibit tour-cohort during their 15-month commitment to the program. The state agencies and local organizations practice the Minnesota Humanities Center’s absent narratives approach — an equity-based approach to partnership building and community engagement. State partners provide training and reflective experiences for host sites, develop local content for the exhibit, and connect host sites with resources. Host communities build partnerships and plan public activities. Soil and water conservation districts, museums, arts organizations, and tribal governments have all been hosts in the past.
