R.A.C.E. Matters and April Banks present Braiding Water, September – October

From drinking to washing, fishing to farming, surfing to winemaking, to storms to droughts, water is present – or absent – in all of our lives. . . and its impact reveals both dramatic difference and shared commonality.

Braiding Water is our multi-location art & cultural experience exploring and expanding our connections with water on the Central Coast. By centering the experiences of local Black, Indigenous and other People of Color, Braiding Water invites all to imagine sustainable and just water futures.

Our opening ceremony will be an event like you’ve never experienced before! Doors open at 6 for you to enjoy art installations, purchase food and ice cream, and hang out with community. Program begins at 6:45. Stay up to date with all Braiding Water events here.
