    While we most commonly use the word affluent to describe a wealth, affluent originally meant “flowing freely or in great quantity,” such as a small stream flowing into a larger river. Join us as we share creative writings that demonstrate creativity that flows freely into the larger river of understanding and art. We will also investigate our relationship with water and the natural world, and explore what we consider wealth and how, in shifting the wealth we prioritize, water might also again be able to flow freely.This event accompanies H2O Today, a traveling Smithsonian exhibition touring Utah in partnership with Utah Humanities. The tour is part of Think Water Utah, a statewide collaboration and conversation on the critical topic of water presented by Utah Humanities and its partners.
