World Water Day, an international day to celebrate fresh water, will be held at Dahl Arts Center, 713 7th Street, on March 31, 2018 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. This free event will include a concert, snacks, and a silent auction. Vibrant, foot-stomping performances by musicians and spoken-word poets will be interspersed with brief information sharing about how South Dakotans can protect our precious water supplies.
The River Liffey Boys will begin the celebration with throbbing bluegrass and celtic rhythms, followed by performers Steve Thorpe and then Linda Boyle whose songs that will inspire your deepest connection to the land and water. Spoken word poets from Pine Ridge will illuminate the connections between clean water and Indigenous rights, and weave together past resistance to oppression with future tasks, and singer Anna Robbins will celebrate the spirit of water in all of us.
Attendees will enjoy heathy snacks from Breadroot Foods Coop. A silent auction featuring textiles, photos, paintings, quilts and jewelry will be held. Artists will be present with items for sale. Booths will provide additional information about protecting the region’s water from exploitation and pollution.
Admission to the event is free, and people of all ages are warmly invited.
