Join us on September 17th, from 10AM to 1PM, to celebrate our Three Creeks Confluence project!
Celebrate with the Seven Canyons Trust, Jordan River Commission, ArtsBridge America, Center for the Living City, and Glendale Community Council! This project will mark the beginnings of the healing and repairing of our hydrology by uncovering the 21 miles of underground creeks in the Salt Lake valley. Assist with the painting a meandering creek channel over-top the underground culvert. Build a chalkboard public-art piece to gather additional community input on the Three Creeks Confluence project. Sample local food from Salt Lake City's west-side and learn about other community organizations doing amazing work in the neighborhood. Participate in our Seven Creeks | Walk Series and become an activist for your local hydrology!
INTERVENTION 1 - CREEK CHALK CHANNEL
Participants will paint a creek overtop the culvert at the project and illustrate ideas and visions within the channel, providing a canvas for creative expression.
INTERVENTION 2 - CHALKBOARD VISIONING
A chalkboard visioning installation -- with prompts, such as “I envision my neighborhood as” -- will allow residents to provide project visions on-site.
Three Creeks Confluence is the first phase of the Seven Canyons Trust’s 100 Years of Daylighting vision. It is the restoration of the underground confluence of three urban creeks (Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley’s Creeks) and the Jordan River, creating connection in an underserved neighborhood, a green infrastructure component to treat stormwater, and the naturalization of an important riparian area. Since its inception, the Seven Canyons Trust has successfully partnered with Salt Lake City to bring this project from a concept to the verge of reality with the majority of funding secured and widespread community support.
