Water // Fire visualises the connected impact of Indigenous cultural resurgences against fracking and contamination across the continent. Through an exhibition and events featuring frontline water protectors, fire practitioners, and community research and advocacy partners, this cooperative program focuses on water and fire using moving and still image, audio and textual elements. Standing in solidarity with First Nations resistance campaigns across the continent, Water // Fire aspires to healing Country amidst the social and climate crisis of colonisation.
