Uncovering some of the complexities of the freshwater crisis through positioned (hi)stories enables more sensitive and relational ways of connecting local and larger struggles. Tapping Water holds space and invites dissident voices committed to critiquing resource commodification and mercantilism.
Water flows through all our aspects of life—our bodies, the food we depend on, the environment we live in, and the bodies we share it with. Through a constant circulation of intake, trans- formation, and exchange, we enact watery relations constantly, whereby often unconsciously. Water combines rest with resistance. The proposal seeks to create events that explore the various dimensions of water, from its environmental impact to its political and social dimensions.
