Call for Submissions: Big Water Creates Big Impact   

Central Michigan Libraries and Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Libraries are accepting submissions from people of all ages for the Big Water Creates Big Impact Virtual Exhibition through May 31, 2021. 

“We encourage anyone who has a story to tell to participate in this exhibition. There are no entry fees to submit your work. We want to give people in Michigan a platform to share how big water events have impacted them,” said Kathy Irwin, Dean of Libraries at Central Michigan University Libraries. 

Almost everyone in Michigan has been impacted by floods, rainstorms, pollution, water quality issues, erosion, or other incidents involving our rivers, lakes, and water supply. Big Water Creates Big Impact Virtual Exhibition invites original works in any medium or area of research. Submit your photos, audio recordings, or poetry. All ages are welcome to participate.   

Big Water Creates Big Impact Virtual Exhibition is accepting submissions until the end of May. The exhibition website will launch in fall 2021.   

Funding for this program is made possible by a programming grant from the American Library Association’s Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change initiative and CMU’s Friends of the Libraries. 

The Big Water Creates Big Impact Virtual Exhibition website has more information and a link to the submission form.
