An example and a sketch of the Dreaming Water Houses that will go up along the Santa Fe river (third photo) on May 17th. There will be a walk (open to the public) of the river on the 17th, stopping at each new Dreaming Water House along the way. The Water Houses will be sponsored by different Santa Fean families, and at each new Water House there will be a commemorative ceremony and gathering. Sponsors still wanted by April 30th! 150$ building cost per Water House sponsor.  Email valerie@littleglobe.org to be part of this celebration of the Santa Fe river. Contact us as soon as possible as only a few Water Houses are still available for sponsorship.

A Month of Rest, Now Plans for Year Three Begin

After taking the month of June off, the Rivers project team is now making plans for year 3 of the project—more community engagement/outreach, more art along the river, more progress toward an innovative, interactive, informative and beautiful Santa Fe “Riversite.”  Check here every once in a while, for updates.

And, if you would like to participate and/or volunteer to help us with our work, please contact Valerie or Bobbe or Dominique:  valerie@littleglobe.org, bobbebird@gmail.com, heartistdm@aol.com.
