Gallery exhibits & forums at the Cathedral celebrate the Year of Clean Water.

Runs April 11 - May 10

On Being a Water Body: Shared Destinies and Artful Means
April 12 at 10:10 a.m.
Dean’s Forum with Kathy Skerritt of Bright Waters Rising

The human heart is 73% water, babies about 78%. Our blood is about 92% comprised of this increasingly globally degraded element. What does it mean to be a water-body living on a water planet? What is artful inquiry and how might it reshape how we think about water in our community? Join us for an intriguing conversation about how exploration of our deepest sense of relationship with water may reframe how we use and steward this essential element.


The Great Lakes Commons in a Global Context
April 26 at 10:10 a.m.
Deans Forum with Dr. Leo Burke, University of Notre Dame
Leo Burke joins Dean Lind for a conversation about the emerging global commons movement and how reframing the waters of the Great Lakes Basin as a commons may offer the best hope for effectively stewarding them. Leo Burke directs the Global Commons Initiative at the Mendoza College of Business, the University of Notre Dame.
