[Yasmin_discussions] call to virtual exhibition - deadline extended

Dear Yasminers,

I'd like to inform you that the deadline for submitting works to the
virtual exhibition "HOT WATER ­ Water, Peace & War" has been extended to
the 14 March 2015.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Artists, scientists, activists, teachers, youth are invited to upload
videos, digital postcards, poems or texts on the theme of ³HOT WATER²:
climate change, environmental decline, rights violations, volatile
politics and conflict about water.

Please consider contributing and share far and wide

Cheers from rainy Brisbane (under the influence of Cyclone Marcia)

Waterwheel, Make and Share about Water

The English expression ³To be in HOT WATER² means to be in trouble.
Currently, climate change, environmental decline, rights violations,
volatile politics and conflict all suggest ³HOT WATER².
Water is a fundamental element for all beings on Earth. A symbol of life
and a ³common good² which should be available to all, water is quickly
becoming a commodity to some, and often taken as hostage in conflicts to
besiege and displace populations. Corporates, governments, and industries
such as mining and tourism use it for their own short-term benefits,
depriving people ­ especially Indigenous people and farmers ­ of their
rights, causing pollution, threatening health and the environment, and
compromising long-term water management.

How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social, cultural
and environmental value of water?
How can we share the responsibility of water in a positive way?
How can we all preserve the right of access to water?
How can intergenerational knowledge-sharing get us out of ³HOT WATER², end
conflict and find peace?
