Eau-Dacité Waterway Festival

June 07 2019 @ 5:00 PM - June 08 2019 @ 12:00 AM

Eau-dacité Waterway Festival is an immersive initiative that will celebrate the local and national waterways and marine spaces. Art and culture will be used to explore the theme of what our waterways mean to Montréalers”. This project will be targeted to all segments of the population, with a special effort to include minorities and underrepresented people in environmental sustainability fora. This inaugural event is Montréal’s version of World Ocean’s Day, which is a global anual event held on June 8th. This festival is will make a splash and draw attention to the degradation of our waterways hopefully prompt a civic movement to protect, conserve and enjoy our blue spaces. On a larger scale, this event would draw attention to the position of humans as embedded within the ecosystem, rather than distanced and supreme. Through a playful and engaging approach applied to a very Montreal method of gathering—a festival, this project hopes to repackage waterway health issues and ocean literacy in a more appealing and digestible format.

  • The festival's objective is to celebrate the unique geography of Montréal as a river island and to celebrate the local and national marine spaces and to highlight the importance of conserving and preserving our waterways.
