WATER PROJECT: Tucson's Synergistic Water Festival
THE WATER PROJECT: Tucson’s Synergistic Water Festival integrates arts, science and culture to raise awareness, promote stewardship, inspire ideas, and foster creative expression about our water future. The Water Festival features an art show, dance / theater performance, Enviro-Exhibitor Fair, speakers, workshops, film festival, book fair, kids activities, hands-on participation, and a cross-cultural / interfaith water ritual. Initiating Greater Tucson’s World Water Week, we bring together artists, water experts, educators, engineers, developers, conservationists, health advocates, youth, and many other community members to creatively and proactively engage in water issues from various perspectives. At the Festival, the public has an opportunity to explore the water cycle, from natural systems to man-made infrastructures, so that we can better respond to the water realities and needs of our community.
To participate, attend, and support current and future projects,
please contact JODI NETZER.
THE TIPPING POINT, Performance and Public Forum: Inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s bestseller book, “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference”, in addition to John Zerzan’s “The Psychology of Mass Misery”, this collaborative multi-dimensional performance and public forum demystified the process of creating successfully fun environmental, cultural, political, and highly-spirited movements.
This empowering event focused on the formation and nurturing of a critical mass with a rippling-effect towards positive change. The ideas that arose from the public forums were collected and then later redistributed the audiences from both performances.

performed the day before the
