Anba Dlo (Pronounced “Ahnbah Dlo”) is Haitian Kreyol for “Beneath the Waters” and is meant to acknowledge and honor the importance of water to our life. Now in its 8th year, Anba Dlo VII: L’Eau de Vie (The Water of Life) is unique as a one-of-a-kind, costumed, interactive community festival that celebrates the multicultural and artistic heritage of New Orleans.
Our Fourth Annual Water Symposium will update progress on efforts to protect Louisiana’s vanishing coast from scientists, State officials, environmentalist, educators, and financiers. Also, featured will be entrepreneurs working on coastal restoration and green infrastructure.
