Do you know of a local or regional event happening during (or around the time of) Wisconsin Water Week? We’d love to add it to our list! Fill out this form to share a water event!

Our theme this year is “Watershed Connections: Engaging Communities in Water Research.” Please join us in-person at the Gordon Dining and Event Center on the UW-Madison campus. The event will include a series of lightning talks, presentations and a panel discussion. We are excited to welcome presenters representing a fascinating array of projects to speak about their experiences engaging and working alongside communities in water research. The event will be live-streamed.

The Flow Project pairs undergraduate student artists in the University of Wisconsin System with water professionals from across the state to create art inspired by water.
The 2023 Cohort will have their art displayed in a travelling exhibit that will debut at the Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention, April 19-21 at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Stevens Point.  This art will also be available online (along with the 2022 and 2021 cohorts) at https://water.wisc.edu/the-flow-project/
