As organisers of the SCANZ residency, we are working on ways to reduce our water footprint. We usually supply tea, coffee beans and a coffee grinder because our largely artist group loves coffee. However, for 2015 water*peace we are considering not supplying coffee on Fridays, and only providing locally grown herbal tea: lemon verbena. This is because the best way to reduce water footprint is to consume locally grown products.
In addition, rather than purchasing the coffee solely on the basis of taste, we will be purchasing Fair Trade Organic. We are also intent on getting food from local suppliers as much as possible. These are positive steps to take, in line with our determination to be involved in positive experiences in regard to the environment.
As part of SCANZ2015:water*peace, Intercreate.org is seeking presentations based on water and/or peace along the following thematic threads: indigenous awareness, beyond the physical, states of flow, bodies of water, science and measurement, commentaries on peace. Presentations will be given in the open air along the Huatoki walkway on Sunday February 1st 2015.
SCANZ2015:water*peace brings together people from diverse backgrounds,connecting everyone in a positive expression of our relationship with water and the power of peace.
Water is essential to survival. Wai, water or flow is central to the worldviews of many indigenous cultures of Earth. The scientific study of water and the onset of turbulence was central to the development of Chaos Theory. Today water monitoring in the environment has become important to sustainable approaches to water management.
Peace is also essential to the sustainability of humans on Earth.
Intercreate has released its first survey on electronic and digital arts, looking into the near future (1-5 years) . While we might speculate on which issues are important, debate the virtues of exhibition in gallery or public space, and have preferences about creative development, using a survey allows us to get a strong picture of where our audience and colleagues are on these issues. We want to know what your thoughts on this are. Help us with this process by filling out the survey now – there are 20 multiple choice questions. Please also circulate this survey among your colleagues.
