Reconnecting to Our Waterways: EMBARK

Sept. 8, 2012

Friday, Sept. 7 – “First Friday” EMBARK Exhibit and Film Screening
Saturday, Sept. 8 – EMBARK Exhibit and Free Admission Family Day

Reconnecting to Our Waterways is a new grassroots movement that is helping neighbors strengthen waterways, and in turn, helping waterways strengthen neighborhoods. This coalition of Indianapolis neighborhoods and residents, private and public organizations, and civic leaders seek input and ideas from the residents and stakeholders to improve the six key waterways and nearby neighborhoods:

  • West Indianapolis and Near Westside, White River/Eagle Creek
  • Mid-north, Fall Creek
  • Lafayette Square, Eagle Creek
  • Midtown, Central Canal
  • Near Eastside, Pogues Run
  • Southeast, Pleasant Run

The History Center is hosting “EMBARK,” a community-based art installation on Sept. 7 and 8 connected to ROW. EMBARK is an interactive experience with animations and videos showcasing the community’s collective input on what could be – and will be – done along these waterways. It also features information on each waterway and neighborhood and specific projects already committed.

On Friday, Sept. 7, as part of Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealers Association’s “First Friday” series, come to the EMBARK exhibit and stay for a water-themed movie on the Kruse Family Stardust Terrace. Offerings on Saturday include free admission to the Indiana Experience at the History Center as well as the ROW exhibit and family-friendly activities to encourage guests to think about their relationship to Indiana’s waterways.
