Collaborations, preparing the Symposium for 2014
WATER VIEWS CARING AND DARING
To scientists, academics, artists, architects, urbanists, engineers, practitioners, activists, inventors and water drinkers to submit projects, papers, performances, panels and workshops.As an element, water embodies extremes and contrasts: oceanic depth or shallow rivulet, transparent or opaque, flowing or still. Water cycles through the living systems of the planet: water bodies, life forms, atmosphere. Climate change has produced global water extremes in terms of sea level rise, polar ice disappearance, floods, droughts and desertification. Is water a shared resource or a commodity that is bought, sold, owned and wasted?  While we might not all share the same perception of water, exploring deeper connections to it may facilitate a greater understanding of how our collective views have influenced actions and decisions about water. 3WDS14 will explore questions about how we are living, and will continue to live, with water and its contrasts. There is a demand for new perceptions and approaches to water management, urban planning, and cooperation, as well as for a renewed respect for water as a vital resource and shared heritage.

THEME: Water Views: Caring and Daring
Sub-themes

  • Histories of human perceptions and practices pertaining to freshwater and seawater 
  • Knowledge of our vulnerabilities and conflicts, needs and trends, success and failures involving water
  • Communication facilitating our collective goals, plans, values and dreams for water, as well as the governance and stewardship that would facilitate them.

So far, there will be nodes in San Francisco, New York, Buenos Aires, Tunis, Berlin, Coburg, Poznan, Torun, Paris, Syracuse, Athens, Hydra and Cairns.  We also welcome proposals for new nodes. Technical hints here.

WHAT IS WATERWHEEL?
Waterwheel is like a multi media YouTube where you can upload all kinds of files, and via the Tap, meet people and audiences from around the world. The Tap is like Hangouts or Skype. It is the venue where presentations and performances are held, using your webcams and uploaded media. You can also draw online in real time. Everything can be moved, rotated, resized and more.

  • an art piece – a drawing, video clip, poem, song, animation, etc
  • a live presentation or a performance – as a written or video proposal (for up to 20 min)
