Upstream Tea Ceremony with Anna Metcalfe

June 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Anna Metcalfe is an established ceramic artist who began hosting tea ceremonies to connect people and share stories related to water in a project called “Upstream.” Sponsored by Vadnais Lake Area Water Management Organization and White Bear Center for the Arts. “Upstream” seeks to build connections and share stories between strangers within a watershed. It starts with a tradition that most cultures share in some way: drinking tea. It is the mechanism by which stories about water are collected and shared.

Each participant receives a cup printed with someone else’s story. They will have a conversation sparked by this cup and share their own water stories.

There will be a series of tea ceremonies with dates, times, and locations to be determined. Participation is free. Please email gallery@whitebeararts.org to sign up for a storytelling group! This program is made possible by Vadnais Lake Area Water Management Organization.

Watch Upstream on YouTube to learn more.
