Global Water Dances 2017
Global Water Dance 2017
Saturday, June 24
9:30am & 4:30pm
Global Water Dances is an international, biennial day of free outdoor engagements around the world that raise awareness of local and global water issues through performance and education.
Join us for Boulder’s 3rd Global Water Dances!
Artists, engineers, and international health educators are planning a special, multidisciplinary event for you that is part performance, part workshop.
You can expect to:
- Spend about 1.5 hours outside in a beautiful location along the Boulder Creek (You'll be standing, sitting, moving, learning, working with each other, and witnessing)
- Have some alone time with the creek
- Meet new people engaged with protecting water in a variety of ways
We hope you'll leave inspired, connected to like-minded community, and more educated around your relationship with water!
This is a FREE, FAMILY FRIENDLY, and HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE event.
Saturday, June 24, 9:30am & 4:30pm. Please register here so we know how many people to expect at each time.
Location by Car: Drive east on Walnut, under Foothills, past KGNU, all the way to the end. Bear right when you get to the final parking lot. Follow the signs and meet us at the entrance to the creek path straight ahead.
Location by Bike or Foot: You will find us in a picnic area on the section of the Boulder Creek Path east of Foothills & south of Pearl Parkway, behind the Foothills Community Hospital.

(Watch videos about their inspiring work using music & dance!)
Members of Rocky Mountain Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders recently volunteered their time to design and construct a water transportation system for a rural indigenous mountain community in Guatemala.
