Water writes: global, collaborative water murals

The Estria Foundation has a very interesting Water Writes campaign going on. Full details and videos are available here of the the 10 collaborative mural projects that reflect on water. They are taking place around the world from South Africa to the Philippines, Columbia and Canada.  Here is a short description and a video sample from the Klamath region:

Water Writes

“The theme of water connects the participating communities and documents the current local and international water crisis.

Through our collective creative process, we engage youth, artists, organizers, and environmental activists to create imagery which reflects the relationship between the people and the water of each area. Community members are invited to a public paint day and able to participate in bringing these ideas into reality. The final murals are accessible to view by the public and also to communities across the world through video documentation and the Internet. We hope to spark discussions and cross collaboration between the participating cities and water warriors across the world.”
