When did the narrative around our waterways become dominated by fear and danger? Instead of seeing the waterways as a threat and focusing on all the ways it can hurt us, the work of these participants shift the pervading rhetoric towards one of action. To face climate change, we must feel empowered to do so. WATER [em]POWER focuses us toward artists, organizations, and individuals who engage in building our relationship to the waterways as a means of discovery, knowing, and empowerment. With Kate Boicourt from the Waterfront Alliance, WoW artists Marie Lorenz (Tide and Current Taxi) and Nancy Nowacek (The Play about the Bridge), and WoW Expedition artist Lise Brenner (In Plein Air the Future).
