Are your projects or artworks linked to water? Have you always wanted to do something on Waterwheel but never had time? Celebrate this final large event organised by the current Waterwheel team of Suzon Fuks, Inkahoots, and Igneous.
Artists, scientists, activists, teachers and young people are invited to celebrate World Water Day 2016 by contributing to an online exhibition with short digital media (including performances, poems or texts) on the theme of “Water Works!”
Deadline: 28 February 2016
Following a quick turn around and selection process, a fantastic group of curators will discuss contributions, and respond to the online audience, in a streaming event on the Waterwheel video-collaboration system, the Tap, on 19/20 March 2016
Accepted formats are video (mp4), images (jpeg, png), animation (swf), audio (mp3), text (doc, txt, xls, pdf) or slideshows (pdf). Curators, link to the Tap and time will be announced closer to the date in the Waterwheel newsletter, blog, twitter and Facebook group. Find links to all at http://water-wheel.net
Think of the myriad jobs that are overlooked when you turn on the tap, no matter where you live, in the city or a rural area: from digging wells, to drawing, fetching, purifying, and distributing water, to studying its ecosystems, analysing its composition, to its use in washing, the production of our food, the management of sewage and waste, the caring for equitable access to water, the ensuring of environmental health and sustainability, paying homage to and highlighting water’s qualities or conditions…
Climate change, financial crises, war, and global environmental damage, have all put pressures on water forcing it to “work” as commodity, capital and resource for growing and shifting human populations.While non-human species and natural processes such as coral reefs, wetlands and beavers “work”in the maintenance and transformation of water, there are also the “works”created by the passing actions of floods, tides and storms. How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social, cultural and environmental value of water? How can we give recognition to the indispensable and invaluable ways that water works?

If interested, please let us know: symposium [at] water-wheel.net
World Water Day symposium was a succes thanks to:
all presenters/performers from around the world; Riccardo Petrella and Ulay who opened the event; Amin Hammami and Prof Hichem Rejeb in Tunisia, who organised the main node at Sousse University; and our energetic team in Brisbane composed of James Cunnigham as go-between, Jeff Turpin aka Prof, our time-keeper (!) and the team of Inkahoots who streamlined the arrival on the Taps just on time for audience to go from tap to tap following the flow of ideas, thoughts and propositions of the day.
WaterCheers started with Mahesh Vinayakram‘s beautiful voice witnessing the sunrise in Chennai and ended with AWA, a group of Argentinian artists who fell in love with Waterwheel’s possibilities.
My Australia Council for the Arts Fellowship ended in April 2012. If you are interested to read the report, let me know. I can send it to you.
I’ve decided to continue this blog and will keep you in the loop about my upcoming adventures…
Next: I will be Copeland Fellow with a residency at Amherst Five College and Associate Researcher with the Women Studies Research Centre at Mt Holyoke in Massachusetts, from August to mid-December 2012.
