Water is our only molecule of life.
Ever wondered about the different forms, shapes of matter and energy water can take? The relationship between drinking water, and our city life?
Join Jane Withers, an Internationally acclaimed Designer and Curator, raise some of the most pertinent questions the world needs to ask, if we are to protect, both - Water & our Society.
What's remarkable about her work is the element of design, through which she aims to inspire conversations around critical issues of sustainable sanitation, circularity and nature-based system, the value of rain and how traditional practices are once again informing our contemporary approaches.
Listen in as she illustrates a completely fresh narrative around Water & Culture through her projects such as Water Loop, Wonderwater cafe and Water Futures.
