Water Project

Through a grant from the Capitol Region Watershed District CHAT has created the CHAT about Water project in 2021.

We want to educate SE Asian youth about the waterways of Minnesota. We want them to feel a connection and create a sense of stewardship of these waterways. Water has played a key part in the history and culture of people from South East Asia. Stories about giant fish, dragons and spirits of the water fill our lore.

The waterways are a lifeline to commerce, food supplies and family connection through recreation.

Our project included a concert incorporating water as one of the key themes and art projects sharing youth experience with Minnesota waterways.
