ABOUT NEXT INDIANA CAMPFIRES FILMS
Over the last year, Indiana Humanities has focused its award-winning Next Indiana Campfires program on the White River watershed and the larger question of how Hoosiers relate to water and to each other across watersheds. We’ve hiked and paddled the river and its feeder creeks, learning about the efforts to restore and conserve one of our state’s most significant waterways and considering how it connects urban, suburban and rural Hoosiers. To explore these connections further—and to document a particularly exciting moment for Indiana waterways—we also funded the creation of three short films about the White River.
