"Artists and Activists: A Dialogue about Water and Human Rights"
Photographers Robert Dawson and Roberto Bear Guerra both featured in the exhibition will discuss the artist's experience and unique role in highlighting the connection between rivers, dams and human rights. They will be joined by Steve Rothert, California Director of American Rivers, and Aviva Imhof, Campaigns Director of International Rivers, activists on the front lines of the struggle for healthy rivers and human rights in California and around the world. This conversation will be moderated by Patrick McCully, Executive Director of International Rivers.
Then join us for a public reception to celebrate the opening of Water, Rivers and People / Agua, Ríos y Pueblos, a photographic homage to those who fight to defend rivers and the people who depend on them. With striking imagery by celebrated photographers, the exhibition charts inspiring examples of rivers that have been protected by citizen action, as well as community-led efforts to provide water for people in affordable, sustainable and effective ways.
