Reading Water invites young people (in their twenties or early thirties) in the UK and Egypt to respond to water issues by connecting local experiences of their place, sharing them, and transforming them in collective answers with digital tools, emerging from a contemplative ecology.

It aims to mobilize action by raising awareness on the preservation of water, water cleanliness, sacred water and cultural flow through a contemplative ecology of empathy, collaboration, imagination and technological innovation.

Reading Water brings scientists, thinkers, technologists and young people together to work collaboratively on locative media, digital walks and interactive maps, concerned with impactful activities, river sustainability and climate action.

The focus will be on using locative media technologies and other collaborative tools to codesign ecological restoration and digital art projects along the rivers Nile (Egypt) and Thames (UK).

Application deadline: 31 October 2022
