We the Water (Working Title)
Water is the essence of life. Today we still depend on that same primordial water to sustain life on earth.
Unfortunately, Water has taken a lot of abuse over the last couple of decades. Over-consumption and pollution has caused a record number of ecological nightmares. With the discarding of 3,000 environmental reviews, and cuts to the Fisheries Act and the removal of protections from 99% of lakes and rivers in Canada, the damage we have sustained thus far will be nothing in comparison.
We rely on Water for our survival; it is in the air we breath and the food we eat. Similarly, recent scientific discoveries are uncovering how Water is more than simply the sum of its functions and uses. For example, through Masaru Emoto’s work with water cells, he has scientifically shown how different types of music can transform the crystals in water. But not only music, he also wrapped a piece of paper around a bottle with the phrase “thank you” facing the water, and another with the word “Fool”. To his surprise, the water with with “Thank You” wrapped around it formed beautiful hexagonal crystals, and the one with “Fool” showed fragmented and disorderly crystals. Showing to the observer how written intent alone has trans-formative powers. However, this is not new information. It has been long known by the Indigenous and Aboriginal Peoples of the world, such as the Anishinabek, Algonquin, Navajo, Hopi and countless others, that singing, drumming, and dance performed during ceremonies has a trans-formative effect on water.
We need as many local creators and venues as possible to all become Emissaries of Water through expression. Whether it be with your voice, body, hands, shop window displays, facts about water on daily specials boards, anything and everything to get everyone in the city to become a Warrior for Water. The goal is to have all of this occur (if possible) simultaneously across the City by September/October.
Each venue will showcase a different theme about water. Such as;
1.Tao of Water
2.Connectivity of Water (Interactions of water with Elements etc)
3.Nature of Water(Quantum Science of water, trans-formative abilities)
4.Conductivity of Water
5.Victory- War of the Waters(To help Manifest a better vision for the future story for water)
6.Water- A Love Story
7.Motion of Water
Through our efforts and work we also hope to raise money for various organizations who promote water sustainability and outreach, So we are also looking for organizations who would like to be a part of this project as well.
What we need from you:
1. Confirmation of your participation by April 5th,
2. Do you have a suggestion for a theme not listed here?
3. Do you have a suggestion for a Venue that will has wall space for art?
4. What do you think you will be submitting? (poem, painting, dance, skit, etc)
Send your name, phone #, email, and website to Artshow.firstname.lastname@example.org
Join the Facebook Group for discussions on how to create this show
Be like water, spreading outward across the city, where each Artist is a drop that will create the ripples that will spread onward and out and put back in place the reverence and respect that water deserves.
