Young Water Speaks is a national youth storytelling project.

Inspired by local waterscapes, culture and history, this textile installation series features original artwork by 8 artists and represents the winning stories from year 1 of the project.

Winning authors participated in Waterlution’s Young Water Speaks workshops led by Youth Advisory Board volunteers. Workshops included character creation activities, discussions on where we can draw inspiration from, and how to create different genres. Young Water Speaks connected with over 2500 youth across Canada through these storytelling workshops and special events with diverse storytelling artists such as Kalvonix, Rosemary Hu, Grandmother Kim Wheatley, Allie Rougeot, and many others.

The contest is accepting 2nd year entries until March 21st 2022 and you can register your child, class, or youth group for a workshop today!
