Still Waters Run Deep: Recipes, Stories, and Songs is an interactive healing exchange allowing the local community to record their experiences from the floods of 2013. The bARTer collective and YOUTunes invited people from all backgrounds to participate by contributing stories and recipes to their participatory public arts project for The Flood Project: Rising Above & Restoring Boulder Through Art. This collection of local vernacular history capture and recount the emotional climate and events and will result in a commemorative catalog.
