“Without water, none of my work is possible, I believe it is part of every job, as it is part of us. We put together a piece to highlight the use of water in work across the world, expressing how it unites us all.” ~ Emma Fay

Artworks commissioned by UN Water to support World Water Day as part of the UN Water Strategy 2020.

Water Is Art was the key message for World Water Day 2015. With the initiative to give prominence to water being at the core of sustainable development, the artwork focused attention on some of the global realities the campaign highlighted.

The 2016 campaign saw a focus on the message of Water Is Work, and the piece devised in collaboration with Enter Edem Productions, is a celebration of the importance of water to the working artist. Entitled Water Unites Us All, the project resulted in a short film and still photography that provided inspiring promotional material for the campaign.
