ISCOADA days – Water, art and community

Sunday September 4 – Saturday September 10
Disco Obor and ArtHub Garden

Between September 4-10 ISCOADA invites you to the event “ISCOADA days – Water, art and community”, which will take place in the Disco Obor space (inside the old hall in Piața Obor) and at the ArtHub Garden. Together we will look at the ways in which we relate to the most abundant natural resource at our disposal: water. We believe that the theme of water cannot be explored mono-disciplinary, so we propose an approach from multiple perspectives, in the hope that we will be able to at least touch the surface of this vast subject. I have prepared for you:

  • a multimedia exhibition what it says about the dynamics and communities around the Sadova-Corabia irrigation canal, a paradise of systematization and socialist production, now in ruins;
  • debate on various topics, such as the revaluation of the archaic practice of water birth; managing water resources in regenerative agriculture/permaculture; reconstruction, greening and protection of mountain rivers; the glimmers of water as political arenas where men, birds and fish meet; and symbols and meanings of water in poetry;
  • screenings of documentary films which will address the issue of water capitalization, sustainable permaculture practices, or communities directly affected by global warming;
  • a community dinner – and happening culinary type potluck which will honor the idea of ​​commensality around Meta kitchen a design-object table with a diameter of 6 m, and performance reminiscent of the Paparude ritual, un concert live which addresses ecological themes, and a party Cumbiaon verses that invoke the mystical links between man and natural elements.

Entry is free on all days event.
