The other three locations are Cambridge Centre for the Arts (Cambridge), Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre (UW) and THEMUSEUM (Kitchener).

Indigenous youth at Six Nations of the Grand River have created personally-meaningful pieces to share their stories, experiences, concerns, solutions and teachings with water managers and the Canadian public. Youth are participating through the Grand-Erie Study’s research partner, Music for the Spirit & Indigenous Arts.

The purpose of this part of the study is to collect information about what matters most, how young Indigenous persons interact with the water system (e.g., swimming, drinking, business, culture), what challenges they see, and ideas for solutions to those challenges. Their pieces will be displayed at a traveling arts exhibition from March to June 2020.
