Water People Stories

Pia Parolin

The Project

This project explores the importance of water in our daily life.

I tell the stories of people whom I encounter along my journeys around the world.

I do not look for the spectacular places that you may find in the news. I search for the normal, daily routines and their changes. I observe and document the impacts linked to the water crises, and the role these play for the local people.

I analyse the connection between people and their water, focusing on the cultural significance of rivers and wetlands, and on the links – or missing connection – to their freshwater.

The aim is to understand and transform how societies see, value and impact freshwater in rivers and wetlands.
