Water To The People / People To The Water Workshop
Pool is Cool + Dallas
Patio Museo de La Rioja – Concéntrico 08
First step 2022 – Bringing the water to the people
Pool is Cool and Collectif Dallas will therefore implement a movable workshop in the City of Logroño, possibly (but not necessarily) focussed on the area around the Ebro river. The workshop will be at the same time a place of meeting as well as an experiential space; a place to experience and play with water, a place to discuss the role of water for the city of Logroño – the river Ebro, the former river swimming pool and the pleasure boats, public and private pools, the use of water in the city during heat waves in summer and the heavy floods in winter, water fountains and retention basins, … It will be crucial that people will physically get in contact with water, by some means or others, in order to break the fine border between land and water, dry and wet, and to establish a personal relation with the questions that are discussed.
We consider the moment of the festival as a laboratory to gather information, evaluate assertions, build a network and simply learn about Logroño through activation, playing and meetings.
The workshop will take place in the museum and in various locations, exploring diverse places and audiences that will lead to the Pool is Cool and Dallas in 2023 intervention.
