With Kate Enters, director and curator of WITP Arts at the private view of Every Drop Counts, official UN Water event for World Water Day 2017 at TOTO Concept Gallery Clerkenwell, London. We gathered together 27 international artists to interpret UN Water’s 2017 theme “Wastewater” and raised public awareness of ways to waste less water, and recycle more. Along with WaterAid.UK we highlighted the situation of communities around the world without access to clean water.
Message in a Bottle Workshops at the London Wetlands Centre and the Unicorn Theatre London in conjunction with volunteers from WaterAid.UK and Thames Water. Using our beautiful upcycled bottles we filled them with pledges, wishes and promises of how we can work together to save water and help those less fortunate than ourselves have better access to clean water.
With Kate Enters of WITP outside TOTO Concept Gallery Clerkenwell, who are hosting our UNWater World Water Day 2017 exhibition 21-30 March. With thanks to UN Water, Thames Water, Industry Publicity and Wateraid.Uk for their support.
Toilet Twinning have just made Catherine a Loo-minary after she donated her World Toilet Day paintings to them. These will be exhibited in various locations in the run up to them being auctioned off in 2017, to raise funds for further building of toilets in the developing world.
With the Mayor of St Albans and District at Without a Compass Catherine won a Mayor’s Pride Award for Cultural Innovation for raising awareness of the 2.4 billion people with no access to sanitation by organising a contemporary art exhibition on the subject. This featured on UN.Water’s World Toilet Day website and helped support their campaign. Catherine also went into local schools to talk to them about the plight of children their own age in the developing world and inspire them to produce drawings on the subject. Money was raised for toilets for a school in Haiti and villages in Burundi and Sierra Leone.
#ichoosetapwater Christmas Tree for Friends of the Earth Designed by Catherine Fenton, and constructed by fellow artist Lawrence Mathias and Friend of the Earth’s Amanda Yorworth Amanda wanted something to remind people how many bottles are wasted drinking bottled water, that is is often no different from tap water, to be displayed during Sustainable St Albans week 2016 then through to the New Year. Design was inspired by a campaign I saw in Canada called #ichoosetapwater, hence the taps instead of a star.
