Her Water, Her Future

Invitational WCA/NH Member Show

March 4 – March 29, 2018

NHTI Library Gallery
31 College Drive
Concord, NH 03301
Deadline: February 16, 2018

All over the Globe, the role women play as providers, users, and guardians of water—one of the most elemental of our human rights—can be seen in action. From women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa spending 40 billion hours in one year in search of and carrying water, to women in Flint, Michigan; Sacred Stone North Dakota; and Houston fighting for safety of and preservation of clean water, there are examples of contributions made by women that improve water governance and acquisition for present and future generations. Time spent carrying water is time absent from school. Drinking water contaminated with water borne illnesses, lead, and other chemicals causes sickness, irreversible damage to bodies and brains especially of children, and death—of individuals and entire communities alike. Clean water is needed for a civil society to grow and prosper.

One of the major principals of the Dublin Statement on Water is “Women play a central part in the provision, management, and safeguarding of water.”

And from the United Nations: “World Water Day (March 22) is a day to raise awareness and inspire action to tackle water and sanitation issues.”

With these thoughts in mind, and in celebration of WWD 2018, WCA/NH invites artists to be inspired to participate in the Her Water, Her Future exhibit.
