What is Works on Water?

A month-long, multi-disciplinary art event that presents multiple artistic perspectives on water in  a global context.

As artists and theater-makers respond to a changing climate, increasing urban density and growing public awareness of ecological concerns, more art projects are happening on, in, or in relationship to water.  

From June 4 to 30, 2017, Works on Water turns 3LD Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan into a thought hub in which a diverse cohort of artists, scientists and audiences come together for wide-ranging conversation about the relationship between people and water — on an individual, community, and humanitarian scale.
