New River Conservancy (NRC) and the Center for Appalachian Studies (CAS) invite you to Water Cycle – a free, family-friendly event on Sunday, June 2 from 3:00 – 8:00 PM  in Creston, NC at Riverview Community Center that will showcase area artists and offer hands-on workshops for the public.  The goal of the event is to amplify the need and increase awareness of the importance of a clean and healthy watershed.   Workshops begin at 3:00 PM  and will feature water monitoring, weaving, poetry, and photography.

Performances featuring live music, poetry, and film will start at 6:30  to 8:00 PM.  Performers include Trevor McKenzie and Julie Shepherd Powell, Scot Pope and Brenda Smith, and Annie Woodford. A special screening of the Trash Trout Motion Picture Show will close the show.  The Trash Trout Motion Picture Show, produced by Tom Hansell, utilizes trash collected from the New River as art on the big screen.  Trash is easy to miss when it is alongside the road, it’s just a small piece of paper or plastic we drive by at 60 MPH.  When it is blown up on a screen we can’t miss it and perhaps will pay closer attention to it in our environment in the future.
