MetadataShow full item record
With 2013 designated as the UN Year of Water Cooperation, I feel that the bulk of a Canadians and Water project documented this year would offer the opportunity to release a completed project in 2013. The scope of my project is intentionally broad encompassing many aspects of how Canadians interact with water, from work issues, to food issues, to recreation. I want to gather as much material as I can before I narrow down and select the aspects of water interactions that I’ll focus on. The goal is to create something with strong visuals that would entice a general audience to view and interact with and in doing so, learn a bit about water issues in Canada. Through the 70’s and early 80’s the government of Canada produced a series of Water Yearbooks that were very informative on water use in Canada, but rather dense and lacking in visual enticements to engage with the content. By creating a website with strong visuals or hopefully a publication highlighting Canadian’s enjoyment with water, I hope to reach a broad audience and to highlight some water issues that may not resonate currently with a general audience.
