Educational program
which promotes through the arts watershed awareness

Rivers of Pictures and Streams of Words was created by European Rivers Network. Through our annual art and poetry contest and with the help of our educator’s handbook, helps about 50-100 classes each year of the same watershed to begin exploring the natural and cultural history of their own river. This program offers a multidisciplinary approach to bringing nature and art into the classroom. It invites students (from 4 to 16 year old) to explore throughout several expeditions their own watershed, discover its importance in their lives, and express what they’ve learned, felt and observed in words and images (painting 1m50x2m50 and or a poem). All these paintings are composing a big exhibition which travels throughout the watershed to develop its inhabitants’ watershed awareness. The project runs in different watersheds in Europe
