Sara and Therese will facilitate the invention of collaborative proposals to generate new knowledge of our everyday dependency on water at UCSB. Participants will work in small groups to perform site research and analysis of one water relationship and one environmental media approach. At the close of the workshop, groups will present a proposal for a media design highlighting our relationships to water on the UCSB campus.
