In all you've lived and seen, have you had an instance where you found meaning in something that is bigger than yourself? A moment of perspective shift? What changed after this moment? How can a perspective shift lead to behavioural shift? What is YOUR role in shifting your own perspective and behaviour and that of others on important water matters?|
Join us for a stimulating evening with a film screening followed by interactive dialogue, facilitated by Duncan Holmes of ICA (The Institute for Cultural Affairs).
Come with friends or meet new ones - all are welcome!
Note that this event is being held in a different location than most other Water Docs events: Friends House, at 60 Lowther Ave. (2 blocks north of St. George station)
Accessibility: Via the parking lot (limited space)(entered from Bedford Rd.) and the back entrance to the building. Scooters may not be able to enter the washrooms (wheelchairs are generally fine).
Please register in advance to help us manage seating, but if you show up that evening without having registered we'll gladly welcome you if there's room!
Co-presented by Water Docs and Waterlution.
Waterlution is a facilitator of multi-stakeholder dialogue. We use process and content to engage young leaders, organizations, businesses and communities in fostering pattern-breaking and pattern-making change towards inclusive, sustainable ways to manage water.
The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible (2015, 5:06 min, CAN)
"There is a vast territory between what we're trying to leave behind, and where we want to go - and we don't have any maps for that territory." - Charles Eisenstein
Filmed in the fading light on the shores of Northern Scotland, this short film captures Charles Eisenstein in a moment of grief and reflection. The familiar story of the past is crumbling, while the new story has yet to arrive. In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we, as individuals, do in this space between?
An African proverb states "sometimes you must get lost in order to find your way." Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
