Water Writes

Creating imagery that reflects the relationship between the people and their water resources.

Water Writes is an international series of collaborative murals about critical water issues. The theme of water connects communities and documents current local and international water crises.

Program Goals

The Estria Foundation engages youth, artists, cultural organizers, and environmental activists to create imagery that reflects the relationship between the people and the water of each location that we complete murals. Community members are invited to a public paint day and able to participate in bringing these ideas into reality. The final murals are accessible to view by the public and also to communities across the world through video documentation and the Internet. We hope to spark discussions and cross collaboration between the participating cities and water warriors across the world.

Through painting with some of the communities most affected by water rights issues, the Estria Foundation shares its artistic techniques to assist ongoing grassroots struggles, create a global platform to raise awareness, and inspire a movement.
