The Minnesota Source Water Protection Collaborative has created an artist residency to empower rural community members to safeguard their drinking water and engage local government to join them in dialogue. Watch the recap video to learn more about artist Su Legatt, the city of Little Falls, and the impact of creative engagement.
The Collaborative is a Minnesota-wide effort to protect sources of drinking water convened by Environmental Initiative, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Funding for the effort is provided by the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment through the Minnesota Department of Health and through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and the Board of Water and Soil Resources.
