Telling River Stories

Keywords: college, art, personal storytelling

ABSTRACT

Telling River Stories is a multi-disciplinary project that researches and disseminates the stories of how communities and individuals have lived with the Mississippi River. What has the river meant to people in the past, and how can that meaning be brought to light today? How has the river had different meanings and uses for different ethnic or racial groups? How can stronger stewardship efforts be connected to stories we tell about the river's importance?

The Telling River Stories program has been working with a number of partners within the University of Minnesota as well as off campus. On campus partners include the College of Design, The Mississippi River Design Initiative, Institute for Advanced Study, the Department of Landscape Architecture, the Urban Studies Program and the Water Resources Center.

Off campus partners include the National Park Service Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, Mill City Museum, Historic St. Paul, Confluence Greenway and River Action.
