"HOT WATER—Water, Peace & War" virtual exhibition and discussion panel. Online at: http://water-wheel.net/taps/view/791

A panel of international guests will discuss selected contributions of "digital postcards, poems or texts" uploaded to the Waterwheel website (water-wheel.net) on the theme of "HOT WATER—Water, Peace & War". The call invited artists, scientists, activists, teachers and young people to contribute videos, images, animations, audio, texts or slideshows.

The virtual exhibition and panel will take place on the Tap, the videoconferencing/media-mixing system of Waterwheel. The site is accessible to anyone without the need to log in or register. Online audience can comment in the chat, and join in on the discussion.

The call for contributions, released in English, French and Spanish, contained the following text: “The English expression ‘To be in HOT WATER’ means to be in trouble. Currently, climate change, environmental decline, rights violations, volatile politics and conflict all suggest ‘HOT WATER’. Water is a fundamental element for all beings on Earth. A symbol of life and a 'common good' which should be available to all, water is quickly becoming a commodity to some, and is often taken hostage in conflicts to besiege and displace populations. Corporations, governments, and industries such as mining and tourism use it for their own short-term benefits, depriving people—especially Indigenous people and farmers—of their rights, causing pollution, threatening health and the environment, and compromising long-term water management.
How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social, cultural and environmental value of water? How can we share the responsibility of water in a positive way? How can we all preserve the right of access to water? How can intergenerational knowledge-sharing get us out of ‘HOT WATER’, end conflict and find peace?”
