Water, Rivers, and People / Agua Rios, y Pueblos

The result of a collaboration between numerous activist groups around the world, the David Brower Center’s current exhibition is an homage to those who fight to defend rivers from big dams. With striking imagery by celebrated photographers, “Water, Rivers and People” shows inspiring examples of rivers that have been protected by citizen action, as well as community-led efforts to meet human needs for water. This exhibit is a selection of images from a much larger exhibit currently on tour in Spain and Mexico.

Riverine communities around the world, from California to Cambodia, have faced similar damage to their natural resources and social cohesion, and have faced repression and disregard of their cultures and opinions. This exhibition is a testament to the vibrancy of the international movement to protect rivers and assert the rights of river-dependent communities.

The exhibit features case studies of rivers and dams, as well as river protection and community water-supply success stories.
