The Restoring Balance series, produced in collaboration with media artist Liz Dodson, recognizes that we are at the threshold of a global water crisis and seeks to present the predicament and creative interventions. Women play a central role in water provision and management and must be equal participants in planning for the future. Today women from all geographies, cultures, and traditions are grappling with the questions and challenges of what must be done to sustain the water of the world, working from a variety of vantage points and perspectives. These expressions are a critical component to international dialogues about access to water and the need for creative solutions.
