Planet Texas 2050 Resilience Roundtable: Artists and Scientists in Dialog: Reflections on the Way of Water

How can artists and scientists work together to engage deeply with residents and improve community resilience? What do they learn from each other in the process and what is needed to further develop and support these collaborations?


In this special edition of Planet Texas 2050’s Resilience Roundtable Series, Environmental and Water Resource Engineering Professors Paola Passalacqua and Matt Bartos will reflect on their experience witnessing the Way of Water: Onion Creek with Artistic Director Allison Orr and Producer Lisa Byrd of Forklift Danceworks. The Way of Water is a global arts-based project bringing people together around water challenges. In Austin, Forklift is partnering with the Watershed Protection Department and residents of the Onion Creek watershed to present The Way of Water: Onion Creek
