Connecting projects which address the global water crisis & related topics

ACTIVATE aims to connect art, culture, politics, ecology, and create cross-disciplinary projects that engage with important global issues such as the water crisis, climate change, food security, and other related topics. Through connection and exchange with other voices around the world, our aim is to bring these discussions to a wider audience within and beyond the art world, and to build a strong network of collaborators for the future.
