Intentional and powerful

The Water Festival

The Water Festival came to life in 2006 as a celebratory call to action. At these free events, water leaders are invited to speak, facilitate workshops, and set up booths and tables while notable musicians and elected leaders come together in a community-building effort to raise awareness about local and global water issues. This has been a rare and effective opportunity for water groups to connect with one another and with the public in a festival atmosphere that is free of charge. Water Festival events have taken place in Mackinaw City, Marquette, Traverse City, and Kalamazoo and have become independently organized annual events in Benzie County, Mount Pleasant, and Grand Rapids.

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”
