Likuit Water Cultures


Likuit is the story of the peoples of the world that builds their identity around a water culture, whose defense and enhancement is part of the solution to local and global challenges of climate change.

Development of the idea

Likuit counts the rediscovery of the material and intangible heritage of water, through five communities around the world on four continents. Culture water of this five communities are a core element of their identity and their current struggles against climate change and the sustainability of their lives and its ecosystem.
They are autonomous stories, but narratively connected. The end of one story is the beginning of the next. One community leads to the other.
