Water is Life
12:00 – 13:00
Witness an exchange about themes of Climate Justice and Water within Octavia E. Butler’s Parables series and connections to the work of brilliant cultural strategists, artists, scientists and technologists. Tré Vasquez of Movement Generation facilitates a conversation with ‘Talk To Me About Water’ Collective members Nour Batyne and Martha Bearskin, and Amelia Winger-Bearskin. A group of artists, science storytellers, water scientists, artificial intelligence researchers, data scientists, and more, Talk To Me About Water’s website states:
“It is said that “The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed.” It’s the same way with the water crisis— it will be a crisis for all of us one day, but currently, those shouldering the most of this burden are the global indigenous, the water protectors seeking to stop the extraction and pollution of their ecosystems. It feels far away now, but their water is our water or will be soon. If we don’t listen to them it’s like we’re ignoring a message from the future. Part of ‘Talk to me About Water’ is also bridging that gap for those who are experiencing the water crisis more acutely to hear from them, unfiltered.
