Not A Drop is a 48-hour arts event that will use creativity to draw attention to the ecological, social and political issues associated with water.

Not A Drop is taking place on September 28th and 29th 2013 at 47/49 Tanner Street.

About Not A Drop

Not A Drop is working with artists, campaigners, ecologists and innovators to create a unique event to celebrate water. The weekend takes a creative approach to get people thinking about something we take for granted far too often.

Artwork has been selected that responds to the theme of water aesthetically or that deals with the social, political and ecological issues facing the planet’s water. From a bar themed on Mexican water rituals, to political photo essays and scientific experiments, the event will be packed with provocative and inspiring works, as well as expert talks and workshops for kids.

Not A Drop is about much more than art. Born out of a desire to produce projects and events that will enable artists and campaigners to collaborate in innovative ways, the aim is to stimulate and inspire new audiences to engage with the issues raised, and to encourage them to act. The project introduces audiences to a range of amazing contemporary campaigns including End Ecocide in the EU, Global Ocean, Just A Drop, Pump Aid, River Restoration Centre, Surfers Against Sewage, Water Aid, Water for Africa and Waterwise.
