Creating a more equitable and sustainable water future through integrating arts and culture.
Ongoing work with the US Water Alliance which has included developing a blueprint and training institute to help utilities and water leaders work with artists and integrate culture into their efforts for an equitable and sustainable water future. We are currently helping the Alliance run an Accelerator for arts-water partnerships in five cities and an in-house Artist in Residence program.
Helicon partnered with the US Water Alliance and ArtPlace America to document "bright spots" where arts and culture are advancing sustainable, integrated and equitable water management. This report provides a framework for action and case studies
Helicon helped design an accelerator for water utility and artist collaborations to make progress on local water and climate issues. The first accelerator cohort includes four cities.
Helicon helped design and execute the inaugural artist-in-residence program at the Alliance. The residency provides a working artist with an opportunity to contribute to some of the most innovative water solutions happening in America, by working in close partnership with the Alliance’s staff and national network.
