        { WEST MAREDPALLY SOLVES WATER PROBLEMS – episode four of a four-part series! } In this last video, the students chose to explore their own neighborhood and document its water problems. . . first and formost, the garbage that is dumped everywhere, by everyone. The voiceover accompanying these photos was written in the first days of this project, but was re-written and re-written as new ideas were discovered. And as a teaser. . . the images of the trash-filled drainage right outside the school and the final line: "so it is the responsibility of every citizen to keep the water clean and live a healthy life" leads directly into our next Words Hold Water production. . . This video was produced in tandem with "Words Hold Water" – a collaborative social justice and art-making project that stretches between two continents. Students between the ages of 8 and 14 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India are given prompts and art-making tools to explore their ideas about water. Their drawings, audio recordings, photographs, videos, and writing are uploaded to a communal blog, where the youth view and comment on each others’ posts. This call-and-response between cultures will culminate in an art action, as students perform or present a conceptual artwork to bring attention to their discoveries. http://hyderabadtobaltimore.wordpress.com/
