With Anna Metcalfe
Anna Metcalfe is an established ceramic artist who began hosting tea ceremonies to connect people and share stories related to water in a project called “Upstream.” Sponsored by Vadnais Lake Area Water Management Organization and White Bear Center for the Arts. “Upstream” seeks to build connections and share stories between strangers within a watershed. It starts with a tradition that most cultures share in some way: drinking tea. It is the mechanism by which stories about water are collected and shared.
Each participant receives a cup printed with someone else’s story. They will have a conversation sparked by this cup and share their own water stories.
There will be a series of tea ceremonies with dates, times, and locations to be determined. Participation is free. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a storytelling group! This program is made possible by Vadnais Lake Area Water Management Organization.
