'Every Drop Counts’ will be an exhibition of around 30 contemporary artists’ works responding to the title, which explores the necessity and precious nature of the water reserves and usage worldwide.
World Water Day Art Workshops will also take place at WWT London Wetland Centre – Queen Elizabeth’s WalkBarnes, London Sw13 9WT on the 18th-19th March.
WITP believes that reserving and raising awareness of such issues starts at home and habits need to start when young. We have partnered with UN Water to deliver this exhibition and an accompanying educational programme to London schools and youth groups in order to raise awareness through the universal language of art.
Art is a tool of communication – it does not need translation, but the fact that it is open to individual interpretation enables a comfortable platform for discussion and exploration.
The artworks displayed will explore the theme of Water and be a vibrant visualisation of the UN Water Day theme of wastewater. As artists we use water a lot in all our work – most paints are soluble by water. This exhibition will be a chance to reflect on our own practices and enable a dialogue that is not often considered.
Please note that WITP member artist Catherine Fenton has successfully worked with the UN on their programme in 2016 and will be guest curating this exhibition and delivering the educational programme during the run of this exhibition.
