The water flowing from your tap is the same water the dinosaurs stomped through; the same water Shakespeare drank and that flowed past the pyramids as they were being built. There is only a finite amount of water in the world, and it’s endlessly recycled. However, humans are beginning to use more water, more quickly, and nature is struggling to keep pace.

An arts project run by WITP Art in London, with support of Thames Water, will ask participants to decorate and fill recycled bottles with fun water stories and ideas about how we can all change the way we use and re-use water.

Workshops will be hosted at the Wetland Centre and at the Unicorn Theatre in London.
